KP supporting Plaid at Colston Hall

On Friday I was invited to be part of Lau Land, an amazing weekend of music curated by the trio Lau.  They had programmed a diverse mix of electronic, world, folk and experimental music. I was on in the Lantern supporting Plaid. Jason and I bought our dual screen show to the Lantern. There’s a lovely write up of it from Cone Magazine here.

Here are some pics from the show. It was a great one!

Anyone that picked up merch – I will be bringing Vinyl out in the near future.

LTO’s No Pasa Nada EP will be released through Injazero Records on the30th March and a limited run of handmade lino prints which come with a download code for the EP, will be available at the launch.
“An adventurous blend of hues grey and dark.  Staggeringly rich” Fact
“Awash with crackling, fuzzy low-end decayed beats, glowering bass, moody, masculine piano textures, and percussion like a tour round a blacksmiths forget” 8/10 Drowned in Sound.
Edapollo will be taking to the stage with dream-like impressionist visuals, the colourful display explores textures and movement, expect to be captured by this new AV performance from Ed and Jason Baker.  Edapollo is currently taking some studio time to work on a  much anticipated release, which we will see later this year.
“stunningly delicate, sonic bliss” – The Tipping Point (Generator)

The World is Listening, IWD panel discussion podcast.

Here’s the page where you can find the chat held on International Women’s Day in Rise Records.. enjoy! (i’ll be cringing)

here’s some info from the site:

Turns out the world IS listening! To a panel this week in Bristol… – The World is Listening//

Last Sunday was International Women’s Day, and events were happening all over the world to celebrate! We celebrated in our own way, launching The World is Listening project in Bristol with a panel discussion titled “Where are all the women?” It was quite a broad subject to begin with, and impossible to devour in just one hour, but our aim with it was to get the conversation rolling and inspire ourselves to do more. We handed out some feedback forms and I’d like to share the results with you. We are going to pay very close attention to these results and are already planning workshops and talks for later in the year based on what YOU want! Perhaps this resonates with you and you want to find out more about how to host a talk in your town? Give us a shout hello@theworldislistening.co.uk
Or perhaps you have more to say on the subject?

KP Live at the Canteen, Bristol.

KP @ Canteen

Kayla Painter ‘s Dual Screen show returns for the last time this year to Bristol.

This free gig will showcase the unusual set up of two full sized projection screens, with Kayla performing a live set in between them. Expect to be taken on a dreamy journey through the stars whilst the visuals soar above the performer, and entangle you in an ambient sci-fi world of delights. You’ll catch glimpses of Kayla’s silhouette throughout the performance, and when released from your trance you may have trouble finding your feet, so we advise you move slowly upon exit.

Catch this unmissable show for the last time this year at The Canteen on Stokes Croft, 26th November, Free entry.

“A live show not to be missed” Bristol Live Magazine

‘Off the back of support slots with Lapalux and The Slow Revolt, and remixes for Nils Frahm, Elephant and Oliver Wilde, Barnaby Carter is readying a new release of dreamy hypnogogic electronica, with washes of atmosphere a la Mount Kimbie, Four Tet and Bonobo.’
