Announce limited edition live album
London Kings Place headline show on 2nd December
Following the success of last year’s acclaimed Island Of Noise album, Modern Nature announce news of a limited edition live album to accompany an end-of-year show at London’s Kings Place on Friday 2nd December as part of Bella Union’s 25th anniversary celebrations.
Live At Cafe Oto will be limited to 200 copies, 150 of which will be available at the show while the remaining 50 will be go online the following week. To mark the announcement the band have shared a visualiser for “Spell (Live at Cafe Oto)”.
This truly beautiful ensemble captured in the raw form it was intended, heartfelt and harrowing resonating in the live surrounding.
Commenting on the album, which was recorded at Cafe Oto in May, Modern Nature frontman Jack Cooper says: “I’ve never really understood the point of view that certain records cannot be performed live or rather why simply replicating an album would be anyone’s intention. Island Of Noise was recorded by a cast of ten musicians, but the most exciting aspect of performing the songs on tour was how four people would interpret the music. To me, the most successful element of the studio album is the space and economy, so the four of us decided to focus on that aspect and to leave large sections of the songs open and free. These recordings are taken from the second night of our residency at Cafe Oto and brought the Island Of Noise album full circle. It was here a few years before that I’d seen an Evan Parker and John Edwards performance that sent me down a rabbit hole.”
Support at the Kings Place show comes from Fiona Brice whose new album And You Know I Care is released in October on Bella Union. Tickets are available here.
