Mount Kimbie Cold Spring Fault Less Youth

British electronic duo Mount Kimbie‘s much-anticipated second album, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth can now be streamed in its entirety via NPR – for one week only – before it’s official release via Warp Records on May 28.

Following the success of 2010’s Crooks & Lovers, Mount Kimbie’s Dominic Maker and Kai Campos‘ ethos for their sophomore album was the creation of musical arrangements that would translate into stage-friendly live setsThus, a symbiotic relationship is formed between their signature beat-making style and the abundant use of livelier drums and percussion.  Cold Spring features two collaborations, “You Took You Time” and “Meter, Pale, Tone,” with up-and-coming British singer/songwriter King Krule, and notably, both Maker and Campos can be heard singing on the hit single “Made To Stray.”

We’re excited to see whether Mount Kimbie has achieved their goal of a bigger, live performance sound when they take the stages on their forthcoming North American tour.  See below for official tour dates.

Check out this official video for “Made To Stray,” directed by Leif Podhajsky, pre-order Cold Spring Fault Less Youth on iTunes, and then head on over to NPR for your first listen.
