I'd only heard a couple of tracks by Mount Kimbe before I bought this CD, but it was a massive surprise. It is a beautiful little album. If you're into anyone electronic from Aphex Twin to Zomby, it is highly recommended.
This is one of those albums where a track finishes and rather than getting more of the same, you're surprised by something totally different, that still manages to maintain the pace and flow of the album. It feels like a real record, not a collection of random singles. Songs take their time to blossom, melodies and rhythms cleverly flutter around before you fully get the picture. It manages to sound extremely organic and natural, yet it employs a lot of woozy.. even maybe funky bleeps and bloops warp-style.
Overall I would say this is a stunning album. Call it dubstep, garage, IDM or house, call it whatever, but it most definitely could not describe the clever orginal sound that these guys have cooked up with their beats. I look forward to when these guys get even better at their craft.
