Mount Kimbie – Crooks and Lovers

Introspective and ambient experimental form

Mount Kimbie are a double hype band, being one of the most exciting proponents of the in-vogue dubstep genre. Their debut album splinters dubstep into a more percussive, more introspective and ambient experimental form, to strange and interesting effect; melancholic opener ‘Tunnel Vision’ sounds like a scout troupe playing camp fire songs in purgatory, with strange chanting and backwards guitar chords.
