Do you like feeling happy and weird?

Look at these faces, LOOK AT THEM!

Do you recognise them? Me neither, but I know what they sound like!

They are the faces of “Mount Kimbie”, an  electronic duo consisting of Dominic Maker and Kai Campos and I’ve been listening to their album “Crooks and Lovers” for small measure of time now. Let me tell you chords have been struck. This British Brollaboration (Yeah, I just made that word up) know how to whip up quiet fervor and lull you into false senses. Don’t just take my word for it though, listen up herr!

Type “Mount Kimbie accolades” into google search and stand back!  “Pitchfork Media called it a “Beautiful, small and clever album”, Vice Magazine awarded it 10/10, describing the record as one which “Stands out as something genuinely special”, and NME placed it at number fifty-six in their top Seventy Albums of 2010. It was Rough Trade‘s Album of the Week, Drowned In Sound described the record as “yet another indefinable beast, one that seems to take real joy in refusing to bow to expectations, and avoids conventional song structures in favour of hazy, dreamlike composition” and “certainly a contender for album of the year”

I can’t plump it up any further suffice to say if you’ve ever grappled with your ability to chill the F*** out!, press play!
