M+N Lunchbox Series #2: Otouto
The M+N Lunchbox continues next month with a free performance by eclectic pop outfit Otouto (pronounced “otto-ootoe”) at 1000 £ Bend in Melbourne’s CBD.
Comprised of siblings Hazel and Martha Brown and Kishore Ryan from Kid Sam, the trio will perform in The Bend’s purpose-built exhibition space on March 5 (the day before the Golden Plains music festival in rural Victoria) at 1pm.
The band have garnered acclaim from the likes of US folk musician Jim White for their all-action live show that incorporates pots and pans for percussion, as well as baritone guitar, Farfisa and homemade keyboards. Their debut album, Pip, will be out on March 22 through Two Bright Lakes. In the meantime, you can listen to its “wistfully abstract” first single, ‘Sushi’, here.
The first Lunchbox gig was held on February 5 with a performance by Denim Owl. Photo evidence here, with footage to be posted soon on M+N TV.
