  • Mount Kimbie's third album, Love What Survives, combined Krautrock rhythms with features from Mica Levi, King Krule, and James Blake, breaking the post-dubstep mold the duo pioneered on their early efforts. To celebrate the record’s fourth anniversary, Mount Kimbie have released two tracks as a free download. "Black Stone"'s motorik groove lays the framework for icy, churning synthscapes, evoking an early morning train ride through a dreary city. Its wispy but steadfast beat chugs along while the electronics evolve from simple, descending melodies to washes of digital noise.
