Mount Kimbie

Author: Colin | Published: 29/5/13

You can colour me a fan of Mount Kimbie’s work, well, at least their debut album, Crooks and Lovers (their singles don’t do so much for me). I’m also a fan of the artwork of the first album which suited the duo’s delightfully contemporary take on the experience of summer in the (south London) city:

Their subsequent EP, Carbonated, continued the theme:

Which makes the front cover of their sophomore release, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth all the more disappointing. Granted, the new album sees Mount Kimbie diversifying musically, but to these ears it’s still suffused with a sense of place that’s lost to this abstract, Matisse-like design:

  1. This is the perfect site for everyone who would like to find out about this
    topic. You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I
    personally will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a subject that
    has been discussed for years. Excellent stuff, just great!

  2. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to tears at work
    so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break.
    I enjoy the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take
    a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, good site!
