4.0 out of 5 stars Mount Kimbie Spring Back, 21 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Cold Spring Fault Less Youth (Audio CD)
This is the second album to be released by London-based outfit Mount Kimbie. 'Crooks and Lovers', their debut album, was a very unique album with an upbeat and eclectic array of post-dubstep offerings. Bounces, bleeps and clicks with well selected vocal samples, all swirled together in a very original way made that album a huge success. The follow up, 'Cold Spring Fault Less Youth' builds on this sound but takes a largely more vocal turn. Two tracks feature underground songwriter and artist King Krule. If you've not heard him before, as I hadn't prior to listening to this album, his vocals certainly take some getting used to. That's not to say he's bad, just that, like this album as a whole, it'll take a few listens to really get it. But once you do, you'll be hooked.

Stand out tracks? The excellent 'Made to Stray' is the tune of the album for me. It builds and builds and then drops into a catchy vocal finale. Almost it's equal, the superb 'Break Well' is structured in a similar way, building up the intensity before dropping swiftly into a lush array of beats and melodies, leaving the vocals until deep into the track.

Overall, I think this album is a great continuation of what Mount Kimbie began in 'Crooks and Lovers'. Looking forward to more to come!
