Mount Kimbie just released another video from their excellent Cold Spring Faultless Youth album, with the song “Home Recording.” The atmospheric track has atmospheric visuals, with almost slow-motion video pans through scenic, gray shots of urban decay, what looks like a home recording studio and a downtown environment as day turns to night. The Mount Kimbie visual narrative is abstract, and almost reminiscent of the classic Jacques Tati film Play Time or even Richard Linklater's Slacker, as a moving image piece that meanders around for a day while looking at life in a city. Completely cool.
"Two years is a long time. Tastes change, what you want out of your life changes, and so on. Naturally, how we want to sound has changed too," said Dominic Maker of Mount Kimbie. This means moving beyond the minimal and dubstep leanings of past albums like Crooks and Lovers into a wider range of influences, always evolving and pushing new boundaries.
