Kye and Penultimate Press plan two-day fest in London featuring Graham Lambkin, Call Back the Giants, Astor, and more!

My boss just caught me looking at the lyrics for Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff,” because I thought I was going to write this post up in homage to that track. After some long eye contact with management, though, I’ve closed the tab on that idea. Even so, it really is just One of Those Days. You feel me? When you don’t want to wake up, but then you do, and you come in to work and decide to write a TMT news post about Kye and Penultimate Press’ two-day festival at Cafe Oto in London, and then you get all dusty at the front desk because why don’t you live in London for Pete’s sake? Just give me something, like maybe the fourth wall in this news post, to break, you know?

But, okay, anyhow, on October 17 and 18, Cafe Oto in London will host a little two-day festival featuring musicians in the orbit of Kye and Penultimate Press. On Friday the 17th, Matthew P. Hopkins, Moniek Darge, and Call Back the Giants will perform, followed by Astor, Vicky Langan, and Graham Lambkin on Saturday. Both Kye and Penultimate Press have spent the last several years quietly releasing a whole host of boundary-fiddling music both from performers at this festival, and a wide array of others. Last year’s Vent from Matthew P. Hopkins for example, which was on Penultimate Press, and this year’s collaboration between Moniek Darge and Graham Lambkin Indian Soundies is jointly on Kye and Penultimate Press (listen to an excerpt to “Indian Weather Trap” from that release below, too). Each of these releases are of a piece with the carefully curated but diverse array of sounds and approaches that both labels have come to be associated with. Doors open each day at 8 PM, and advance tickets for individual or both days are available here.
