I had never heard of her before I saw her live at SXSW in 2015. I wish I'd heard this album before then, because the songs are definitely engaging, the music is great, and her talent just can't be denied. Something about the mix or something just doesn't come anywhere close to capturing what it's like to hear her live. She BLOWS YOU AWAY. If you're only able to go see one act this year, trust me, see Kate Tempest. You will not be sorry.

Like biggerliver, I downloaded this completely on a whim. Frankly it doesn't much matter what she says, as I find her delivery completely satisfying on its own. Couple that with some nice production and then, most importantly, a beautifully put together story played out through engaging rhymes, and you've got a stand-out album. Particularly if you're from South London, which helps the words resonate. Well worth finding the youtube video (for Boiler Room) where she delivers the whole thing from start to finish. Doing that in one take, without dropping a word and maintaining a vibrant pace, which is pretty impressive in itself. Track 1 is a pretty good place to start, if you want to see if it's your thing. But it makes most sense as a complete work, played from start to finish.

Acclaimed as South London's heir to punk poet John Cooper Clarke, with whom she has toured, Tempest has gigged everywhere from the Old Vic Theatre to Holloway prison, written… more »
