So enters a new genre, post-dubstep. This is well-executed, highly notable, extremely cool electronica, Mount Kimbie's first full-length album after two EPs. I think they are onto something. I like the their new twists on the established dubstep style, which ordinarily is not my favorite. I'm not adroit enough to explain what takes this a step forward but I can hear it, and the links point to the experts who can hyper-analyze it all. I just know I really, really like it. Quiet, I'm listening.
