Mount Kimbie – Love What Survives (Warp)

Place a track from Mount Kimbie’s 3rd full-length, like “Audition”, next to something from their 2011 debut, such as “Carbonated”, and you’d be surprised to learn it’s by the same group. From post-dubstep beat music to something ostensibly more 80’s new wave, and much less like electronic music in general, one wonders if Mount Kimbie is now a band. They certainly sound like it, but the influence of their roots remains clear on  tracks like “We Go Home Together” featuring James Blake, “T.A.M.E.D.”, and “Marylin”. It’s still electronic at heart, beautifully composed, and even more wonderfully evolved.
