World Cafe Next: Kate Tempest

Hear two scarily contemporary tracks from the extraordinary British spoken-word artist.

The extraordinary British spoken-word artist Kate Tempest incorporates hip-hop and performance poetry into the scarily contemporary work on her new album, Let Them Eat Chaos. The album features the stories of seven London characters, each inhabiting song snapshots that take place simultaneously. As a whole, it’s a devastating picture of contemporary London.
