Heads up, kids. A must listen new arrival just came out of the music woodwork but less than an hour ago, and it comes from none other than post-dubstep, electronic, and gospel-imbued soul troubadour James Blake. I’ve actually been wondering for awhile now when he’d unleash some new music on us. The UK singer songwriter and producer is responsible for one of the best shows I attended last year. I was there for one of his three sold out shows at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco and he was nothing short of magnificent, whether it was his solo ballads on piano, his dub heavy re-visits of older classics, or the immense catalog of new music he blessed us with that magical evening. This afternoon, he’s finally released a beautiful new song named Don’t Miss It via a lyric video of sorts. It’s a much pensive and reflective song, sparse and understated yet gorgeously mesmeric with its soft trickling beats, haunting keys, and soulful cooing. Don’t Miss It, which is a collaboration with Mount Kimbie’s Dom Maker, almost feels like a CocoRosie song mixed with James Blake’s downtempo gospel and electro-soul.

It’s been a very long time since we’ve heard from English singer songwriter, rapper, and producer King Krule, so it’s a really pleasant treat to encounter that unique voice of his on Mount Kimbie’s new song, Blue Train Lines. The UK electronic duo makes an entrancing return with their gossamer brand of ambient garage and post-dubstep, which pairs so well with King Krule’s gruff, blustery delivery. Blue Train Lines chugs along like a train itself after its vaporous start. It’s atmospheric yet grimey. It arrives with news of Mount Kimbie’s next album Love What Survives, arriving on September 8th. 

OFFIICAL VID: Mount Kimbie – Home Recording

August 21, 2013

Alright, let’s take it down a notch, or 10, and add an endless amount of atmospheric spaciousness and texture. English electronic duo Mount Kimbie continue to put forth amazing ambient post-dubstep on their latest album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. Home Recording is an intoxicating single off the release. The beautiful new video is as hypnotizing as the song. In it, they merge shots both large scale and small, creating a multi-dimensional effect that is deeply mystifying and engaging.

Made To Stray

March 9, 2013

UK ambient/post-dubstep electronic duo Mount Kimbie debuted some new music for us. Made To Stray is a complex, layered track. I was a bit impatient that first minute, though you could hear something building up. Then the one minute mark hit, and wow. There’s some Caribou like sonic wizardry going on here. Then vocals kick in at a late point over 2 minutes in, and it became more of a synthpop track, and suddenly it was catchy and fun. Interesting progression of things, and good stuff. Since this seems to be a radio rip, I’m not sure how much of the beginning may have been a transition from a previous track.
