    Perhaps Tempest’s greatest achievement is not to fall prey to the pressure for unnecessary revolution; her work sits more comfortably in the tradition of perfecting the groove, not changing it. That perfection might be illusion, but its pursuit can produce wonderful work, as it has right here.

    It’s a vital record that’s a blast of clarity in a muddy, chaotic world.

    Let Them Eat Chaos is another fantastic album by an incredible talent.

    Kate Tempest’s follow-up to the dazzling Everybody Down is similarly ambitious in scope, fired by the same compassion and delivered with the same level of energised loquacity.

    Channelling the vivacity of the Beatnik poets in her hurtling metre and arrestingly forensic imagery, Tempest unravels a modesty in the metaphysics all the more powerful for its naturalism.

    The words and their delivery are obviously the point of Let Them Eat Chaos, but they aren’t the only thing that makes it compelling. From the slowly pulsating electronic currents of Breaks to Perfect Coffee’s early Chicago house chug, the music is uniformly great.
