Mount Kimbie – Maybes EP / Sketch on Glass EP [2009]

December 14, 2009

Album post #17.  Mount Kimbie have released two EPs this year: Maybes and Sketch on Glass.  At first listen it’s quite obvious that the title tracks of each EP are brilliant (see first two videos below).  Out of the ordinary clicks, knocks, drips, and pops skip over thunderous echoeing chords and a catchy vocal sample in Maybes.  In Sketch on Glass, all sorts of crazy noises and jazzy lines dance around a dubstep beat and rumbling bass.  The other tracks take a little more to absorb but are well worth the effort.

Let each album soak in a few times and I think you’ll find the experience very rewarding.  Mount Kimbie paint  foreign landscapes with three-dimensional reverberations and send you to these exotic lands via the London electronic express train.  Kimbie‘s train departs from London, carrying the native dubstep to new musical territory and resulting in a most enjoyable ride if you ask me.

Here is a link to a full youtube playlist of both EPs.
