Mount Kimbie’s new album, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, will be released on May 28.
The duo’s first for Warp Records (Scuba’s Hotflush label released their debut album, Crooks & Lovers), it features two collaborations with Rinse-signed crooner King Krule, ‘You Took Your Time’ and ‘Meter, Pale, Tone’.
Speaking to FACT last year, the duo’s Dom Maker explained that “The new stuff is a lot more free than the songs we’ve done before, in terms of composition. It’s still entirely produced on a computer, but the drums and percussion are much more live in their feel, in rhythm and in flow. In terms of the actual sound…it’s quite a bit bigger sounding that what we’ve done before.”
“I think it’s still quite delicate material, but it has a bigger sound compared to the last album, and I think that must be informed really greatly by what we’ve spent the last two years doing – playing live. We’ve actually gone into a studio, and that was a big step. Obviously at first so you’re sort of blinded by the fact that, yes, we’ve got a studio! Because that’s the dream, I guess. But as time goes on, I think we started to long for and miss the way that we did it before – just rolling out of bed and making music, and not having to worry about the logistics of it. It’s all become quite logistical, really…[laughs] But that’s to be expected, we wanted to approach this second album in a different way.”
