Mount Kimbie - Crooks & Lovers (Hotflush)


Hyped by all and sundry, but certainly worth a fair amount of praise, London’s Mount Kimbie drop their debut LP in the shape of Crooks & Lovers. Lumped in with dubstep and ‘post-dubstep’ creators, Mount Kimbie are less blinkered than many of their contemporaries. This album features a range of gorgeous downbeat and more upbeat organic efforts that charm on various levels. Winners include the sparkly keyed Before I Move Off, fizzing Carbonated and the hyper Mayor, which sounds like Todd Edwards‘ take on garage re-tuned for the next generation. Kimbie are worthy of your attention!
