A couple of weeks ago Mount Kimbie score a 9/10 review for their debut LP, Crooks & Lovers. Then last week they only went and got themselves nominated for our Neptune Prize. Not bad going all in all. Everyone I've spoken to loves the record. Granted, that's about 6 people but that's a big enough sample size for me. Universally acclaimed?
The duo have just announced a handful of dates for later in the year, where you'll presumably get a chance to hear much of their record. That's the sort of thing you'd expect, anyway. You can catch them on these dates at these places in the UK and Ireland.
5 - Jam, Brighton
6 - Hare and Hounds, Birmingham
7 - Cockpit, Leeds
8 - Bungalows and Bears, Sheffield
9 - Stealth, Nottingham
12 - Róisín Dubh, Galway
13 - Academy 2, Dublin
14 - In the City @ Blood on the Wall, Manchester
28 - Abandon Silence @ The Shipping Forecast Club, Liverpool
29 - Heavyweight, Newcastle
30 - Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol
