There’s electronic music and then there’s British “post-dubstep” duo Mount Kimbie, who sound like all your old phones getting it on at a night club. You’ll hear melodies and beats, but also beeps and field-recorded clicks and swells of punkish pink noise. Every so often they add a singer—James Blake, King Krule, etc.—or tweak a vocal sample, just to add a human touch to the proceedings. Meanwhile they’re hacking into your brain, changing your passwords and mislabeling your files.
