Kate Tempest - The Book of Traps and Lessons
While the world stagnates in billowing gray clouds of 'what if,' Kate Tempest gulps at the oft-excruciating air of the now.
She doesn't sit around wondering, she experiences it, runs her fingers through the uncertainty of it all, unafraid of the serrated edges she might find. On her new record The Book of Traps and Lessons, Tempest shows that emotional summoning doesn't only come in the form of pretension and theatrics. Instead she shares the physicality of every atom of her heart, even the slippery patches of opacity. The record is all-encompassing, believing in nothing but the moment.
