Mount Kimbie To Release Album 'Cold Spring Fault Less Youth' On May 27th 2013

After announcing a string of live shows for the summer, Mount Kimbie now confirm details of their eagerly awaited sophomore album. Recorded in their South London studio, 'Cold Spring Fault Less Youth' will be released on May 27th through Warp Records.   

A track from the new record, 'Made to Stray' has already caused much excitement after Ben UFO played it on his RinseFM radio show two weeks ago and a rip was subsequently uploaded to YouTube - this was just a few hours after the duo had finished mastering the track. The reaction was unanimous with the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum, FACT, Dummy, Resident Advisor and NME all promptly reposting the rip. 

'Made to Stray' features the spectral brass and moody percussion that we've come to know electronic auteurs Mount Kimbie for, but it feels bolder and stronger than their previous work - tellingly, the track climaxes with Dom and Kai singing. Vocals have never been at the forefront of Mount Kimbie's music and signifies them taking the reins of a project that's more fully realised than ever before.   

Since 2009, Dominic Maker and his partner in Mount Kimbie, Kai Campos, have played a central role in forging a new form for electronic music. Their influence stretches far beyond the tiny corner of the dance music underground that birthed them. They have repeatedly confounded expectations, transforming themselves from bedroom-studio producers to creators of one of the most fully realised electronic album-length statements of recent years and refining their live show to incorporate a drummer. With their second album, 'Cold Spring Fault Less Youth', finally completed, the perception of what Mount Kimbie are looks set to expand again. 

'Cold Spring Fault Less Youth' combines the electronic sensibilities of 'Crooks and Lovers' but sees Mount Kimbie move out of the bedroom and into a professional studio. Informed by their live shows, Dom and Kai have introduced more live instruments to broaden their sound including drums and horns as well as experimenting with vocals. The duo have undoubtedly grown, they are more experienced, more mature, more self-aware. "Two years is a long time," says Maker. "Tastes change, what you want out of your life changes, and so on. Naturally, how we want to sound has changed too." Unleashing themselves from the confines of dance music, the resulting album feels looser, richer and more enveloping than the duo's past work, yet still retains that Mount Kimbie sound.   

The new record also features two collaborations with the enigmatic artist King Krule who lends his distinctive, discontented vocals to 'You Took You Time' and 'Meter, Pale, Tone'. Having been friends and mutual fans of each other for some time, the collaboration between Mount Kimbie and King Krule came about naturally and they intend to work together again.

Fresh from their SXSW show last week, Mount Kimbie will be playing Field Day, Sound City, London Calling as well as touring the US - a London show will be announced shortly.
