Making frequent appearances on the home stereo these days, Mount Kimbie is a new favorite of ours. A duo that’s performed live alongside another one of our musical crushes, James Blake, Mount Kimbie’s sound relies more heavily on the white noise of field recordings than the lonesome vocalist’s. This video is for a track from their debut full-length, Crooks and Lovers, which was released back in September.
We’ve got the week off from party-throwing, so there’ll be a little extra time for going out. Aside from the must-see El Guincho and Ulrich Schnauss shows, we’ll be checking Babycastles’ video game geek-out happening at Queens’ favorite underground venue, Silent Barn.
Babycastles is a collective of gaming nerds who rescue underground and out-of-print video games from complete obscurity and install them in custom-built arcade cabinets all over town. They’re welcoming a crew of indie game designers from Copenhagen for this edition. Come for the Rückblende, stay for the akvavit.
