Canadian singer-songwriter Basia Bulat is currently putting the finishing touches to her second album, rumoured to be out by the end of the year, and will be dropping by London for a one-off date at Cafe OTO on November 25th. Also appearing at Cafe OTO in November is psych-folk mistress Josephine Foster. She’ll make her first UK appearance in quite some time with a one-off show on the 14th.
