What I’m about to write will make me seem like Mount Kimbie’s new publicist, but I want as many people as possible to check their tunes out.  Not to be confused with New Zealanders Mt Eden, their debut album, Crooks and Lovers, has impressed me in a way that very few artists have lately.

Their music has been tentatively classed as dubstep, but it’s not as straightforward as just pinning them to one mast. This album is packed full of organic-sounding instrumentation and multiple layers of sound that work together really well. It’s been the kind of music that I’ve been looking for lately, and one which fits into a progressive, Joy Orbison/Nouveaunoise/Flying Lotus way of thinking.

Here, have another one:
