Mount Kimbie, they’re so young and beautiful. Their cheeks are rosy red, their mouths are filled with the rainbow of youth, their brains are filled with wonder. When they took their Play-Doh and made their debut album Crooks & Lovers (TMT Review) back in 2010, we all looked at them like they were the cutest electronic kids in the world. And you know why we did that? Because they were, damn it! Name a cuter tiny electronic child in the world. Don’t. Don’t do that. I will cease you.
Everybody’s gotta grow up, though. For people, that involves gross hair and bleeding and all the feelings in the world. For electronic acts, it means signing to Warp Records. And with that in mind, it looks like our little buds in Mount Kimbie are growing up. Oh, the tears. They’re signed to the label and with that, they’re going to release… something. Warp’s press release says they’re working on their first release for the label, but provides no further information. I bet it’ll be just great, though! So proud of our boys.
