Crooks & Lovers by Mount Kimbie

Mount Kimbie's debut album was something of a revelation on release in 2010. It blended the then (and probably still in many quarters) in-vogue dubstep sound with a more kinetic form of improvised playing that drew influences from electronica, jazz and post-rock. The result was an inspirational blend of hypnotic (mostly) instrumental sound craft that no home should be without. This re-press vinyl on Hotflush is essential wax for your collection.

I'm reviewing this over a conversation about pizza's. Everyone is chipping in. Business Lady in particular is extremely knowledgable on the subject. So the cover gives no clue to what the music contained inside (the album not the arse though i wouldn't be surprised if she was keeping a jumbo sized hi fi system in there). Its kind of unclassifiable post dubstep stuff. Deep atmospheres recalling Burial, Prefuse 73 style glitch, soulful cut and paste samples that nod towards Madlib then just when you think you have it figured up pops some lovely cut up acoustics recalling The Books. Its an inspired waltz through dubstep, instrumental soulful hip-hop, UK soul,ambient, post-rock yet it doesn't sound schizophrenic. A lovely, hypnotic album from start to finish and highly recommended.
