In just five years, the British post-dubstep duo Mount Kimbie has earned the utmost respect from the press and the great electronic parish thanks to their acclaimed debut, ‘Crooks & Lovers’ (2010). Now, after becoming one of the most respected bands even beyond dubstep, and sponsored by cult label Warp, and after a second album ‘Cold Spring Fault Less Youth’ (2013) they’re back this year with ‘Love What survives”their third album, where the duo of Dominic Maker and Kai Campos venture a bit into the land of pop. Tonight they will pay at Razzmatazz.
After a seven year-hiatus and after reforming the band, Deep Dream is the first single from the upcoming Lali Puna album “Two Windows” to be released in September 2017 on Morr Music.
On the new recordings the band opted for a more dancefloor-friendly sound while not neglecting the pop sentiments rooted in Lali Puna’s sound. Taking its cues from a brand of music spearheaded by the likes of Caribou, Ada or even Mount Kimbie, Two Windows sounds lush and focused, balancing the emotional qualities of Trebeljahr’s songwriting with energetic rhythms.
Split between Cambridge and London, the enigmatic electro-indie quintet Lunacre has been recording together since late 2014. They blend a number of influences and call to mind the post-rock, melodic glitch of Alt-J and Radiohead.
Despite the band’s diverse range of influences and experimental soundscapes, Lunacre achieve concise and accessible songwriting, overlaid with melody and harmonies.
Compared to Vondelpark and Mount Kimbie, there’s also a sense of the Bristol sound in here; the intensity of those early Portishead records. They’ve just released their second Ep ‘Schtum’.
