Mount Kimbie: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 7 2012

Though dubstep might be associated with robo-flatulence and car alarm noises in the United States, it's something entirely different in its native U.K. This discrepancy accounts for why the comparatively soulful sounds of London-based duo Mount Kimbie are considered an extension of the dubstep sound. Crooks & Lovers, Kimbie' 2011 debut LP, utilized the genre's dub-like sense of space and clean electronics as a carrier for pop sensibilities and found-sound experimentation. The result is a style that's like an updated Boards of Canada. And while the name might hint at craggy drops, don't expect any — instead, it's all about the details.
