Mount Kimbie, Love What Survives, Std Vinyl, CD, Warp Records
Love What Survives is the third studio album from Mount Kimbie. It is a melodic yet robust electronic record for driving with the windows down, a distillation of their career to date, mixing multiple singing voices and musical personalities, flirting with freeform experimentation, pop tropes and an expansive sonic palette.
The album is the product of three years of intense creative development, continually honed by the duo writing and rewriting their ideas to form something wholly idiosyncratic and personal. It brings together the voices of their close friends and collaborators, James Blake, Micachu and King Krule, who together represent a corner of the UK’s young artistic talent within the immersive, unique atmosphere of a Mount Kimbie album.
The record’s more expansive aura is also indebted to the fact it was made between London and Los Angeles. After Maker moved to the West Coast in 2016 the duo would travel back and forth to work together, cultivating ideas in intensive sessions.
CD in digipack sleeve with 16 page booklet. Double LP with printed inners in a gatefold sleeve plus digital download card.
Press – Features in Noisey, Dazed & Confused, i-D, Mixmag, High Snobiety, FACT, Independent, DIY, NME, Time Out, London In Stereo.
