Four Tet – There is Love in You [2010]

February 2, 2010

Album post #24.  There is Love in You by Four Tet.  My first taste of Kieren Hebden’s music (a.k.a. Four Tet) was on the Radiohead EP COM LAG (2plus2isfive), which includes Four Tet‘s masterful remix of Scatterbrain.  I instantly loved his creative use of organic sounds and electronic modulations of voices, bells, and other instruments.  I’ve probably played Four Tet‘s 2003 album Rounds about a hundred times and didn’t really expect another LP of his to be that good.

There is Love in You is similar to Rounds in its swirling themes and organic sounds, though it uses more driving and straightforward rhythms and also has a few songs with more direct instrumentation (e.g. Circling).  The standout track is the 9 minute Love Cry, which was released last fall and let us know we should expect something exciting in 2010.  Hebden places this track after the gorgeous opener Angel Voices, and before the dizzy dream Circling, which provides a nice transition to the subtler tracks of the record.  My favorite on the album is the closer She Just Likes to Fight.  There’s just something about it that relaxes me and makes me smile.

Here’s a full youtube playlist, which includes Moth and Wolf Cub from the amazing Burial and Four Tet collaboration of last fall.  I also highly suggest checking out (and downloading for free) Four Tet‘s DJ mix from December, Much Love to the Plastic People.
