i’ve not had a saturday evening like this in quite a while, lounging at home and taking things a little slower. the rain has just arrived, along with it a welcome cool breeze and a diligent descending of raindrops at my window. it blends seamlessly with what i’m listening to now – mount kimbie‘s debut album crooks & lovers – especially tonight when i’m using my open-ear headphones. i really enjoy how the music just breathes so much more, hearing the rain fill in the gaps, sometimes even adding onto the textures as it does when the minimal intro of “carbonated” gives way to a sheet of gentle static. in this beautiful moment, everything just seems in its right place. – dan.
crooks and lovers is out now on hotflush.
