Mount Kimbie – Crooks & Lovers [2010]

July 15, 2010

Post #43 (sorry it’s been a while).  Mount Kimbie‘s first LP, Crooks & Lovers. This album is set to be released on July 19, but is available to stream this week here at FACT.  I am so excited about this album that I am posting this after only one listen through!  Mount Kimbie creates a more drawn out ambient sound than either of their previous EPs but still keep their music within arms length of a rhythmic dubstep foundation.  Drowned in Sound‘s review put it well saying [begin paraphrase] that this album sounds as if it was written as a dance album but then was pared down to be a subtle and heady record.  Thus, it requires a careful and intelligent listen, and in my opinion a loud one on good speakers.  Rock on, Kimbie.

(sorry about the robot voice from Hotflush on Carbonated, but the track was too good to leave off and there’s no clean version.)
