Lethe All else consumed by a holy cloud of forgetting Build this man by the way attained Go forth into the warm waters, brother, Happy is he, healthy is he among the pulled out and pulled apart. He sat with them, but not in vain. He sat among the ones long-dead, A feast, a store, a partner, love; Encourage him in all his ways To help him to forget the time of disengagement; Calling power down upon the hour, Scouring the sea for word and need, The broken healer, wounded lasts; Prays the skies to shut the rain and Makes them shower down again. A sign that he's there. A friend. Skilled to these degrees.
The Antique 17:48


Recorded live at club RE in Kraków, Poland on January 29th, 2011 as part of Kayo Dot's winter tour with Tartar Lamb II and Jeremiah Cymerman, KRAKÓW features a unique Kayo Dot lineup that includes guitarist Ron Varod (adding synthesizer to the Coyote material) and drummer Johannes Döpping (SchnAAk, Tarentatec).

KRAKÓW also features live arrangements of earlier Kayo Dot works ("Blue Lambency Downward" and "The Antique") as well as an early proto-version of the song "Lethe" (heard here before its inclusion in 2012's Gamma Knife). Additionally, KRAKÓW notably captures a rare recording of Tartar Lamb II performing the previously unreleased Movement 3.5 of Polyimage of Known Exits.

"The place was really full, the audience was really supportive. Jeremiah had a great, deep experience reconnecting with his Polish roots. I also remember we got to play a long time, which is really special for us" - says Toby Driver.

KRAKÓW is released in partnership with Polish record label Instant Classic and is the second part of Outlaw Recordings - a series of live albums put together with A limited edition 2CD release of KRAKÓW is available though Instant Classic at
