There’s hardly anything to say about Mount Kimbie that you don’t know already. Ever since the duo released their debut on Hotflush back in 2009, their career went uphill. Following their second album released on Warp earlier in the year, there are now four remixes available for your listening pleasure. Above you can stream DJ Koze‘s rework in full, the other remixes by Kyle Hall, Oneman and Lee Gamble can be heard on YouTube.
The “CSFLY Remixes” are out today on vinyl and digital, you can order your copy from Bleep, iTunes or your favourite record store!
I’m glad to see Mount Kimbie return to form with their new video, departing from the dull CGI-excess that was the video for Made to Stray (though I’m usually a huge fan of Leif Podhajsky‘s work!) The new one takes us back to the ordinary life somewhere in English suburbia, filmed in beautiful black & white. “You Took Your Time” has been a personal favourite taken from Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, the duo’s second album released not too long ago on Warp.
I’m not a great fan of this, not after those lastcouple of Mount Kimbie, beautiful and intimate videos directed by Tyrone Lebon. But I do love this song, which I missed writing about when posted on their SoundCloud. Mount Kimbie’s second album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth is only about a month a way, it’s their first one on Warp Records, and easily one of my most anticipated releases (alongside the Thundercat LP) of 2013.
In anticipation for the new Mount Kimbie album, I revisited their previous records over the weekend and listened to some of their liveperformances. And while at it, I found this video above, a recording of their show at Brighton’s The Great Escape festival this summer.
The duo’s follow-up to Crooks & Lovers will be out on Warp in the not so distant future (maybe even this year?), Fact Magazine had the chance to ask them a couple of questions on that.
I remember having seen Mount Kimbie‘s video for Carbonated when it first appeared several months ago. Turns out I never bothered to post it. My bad, it’s a really nice video so I’m going to share it with everybody else who hasn’t seen it.
Ahead of their show at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, British duo Mount Kimbie recorded a little live session for the guys at Daytrotter. Four of these tracks are available for download and you can listen to them below.
You can grab the download by hitting the tracks tab in the player above or from the Daytrotter website (requires registration).
There’s also a recording of the party they played later at the festival alongside Young Turks. If you didn’t hear that one before, head over to SoundCloud for a stream.
The final single off Mount Kimbie‘s much acclaimed Crooks & Lovers brings my favourite track to the turntable once again. In addition to that, the double 12″ features two previously unreleased tracks and remixes from Klaus, Airhead and Peter van Hoesen. Listen to snippets from all tracks below.
You should find Carbonated in all good record stores as of today. Besides the vinyl release you can also get it on CD single (!) or digital download. Whatever you prefer, get it directly from Hotflush or online shops such as Bleep, Juno and iTunes.
The guys of Mount Kimbie just posted a link to the new Jamie Lidell video, but unfortunately it doesn’t play for me. Instead I discovered the duo has a new video out themselves, you can watch it below.
Following the release of their album Crooks & Lovers, Hotflush’s Mount Kimbie are currently touring North America and will soon continue to do so in the UK and the rest of Europe. This week they’re also gracing XLR8R with this guestmix.
