Ibeyi – Deathless (feat. Kamasi Washington)

Ibeyi (twin sisters Naomi Díaz and Lisa-Kaindé Díaz) release their forthcoming new album Ash on September 29 via XL Recordings.

Lisa-Kaindé says Deathless, which features Kamasi Washington on saxophone, was inspired by her being wrongly arrested by French police when she was 16. She had this to say about the song in a press release: “I was writing ‘Deathless’ as an anthem for everybody! For every minority. For everybody that feels that they are nothing, that feels small, that feels not cared about and I want them to listen to our song and for three minutes feel large, powerful, deathless. I have a huge amount of respect for people who fought for, what I think, are my rights today and if we all sing together ‘we are deathless,’ they will be living through us into a better world.”

Ash is the follow-up to their 2015 self-titled debut. Pre-order here.

Mount Kimbie – Delta

Mount Kimbie, the London-based electronic duo of Dominic Maker and Kai Campos, release their forthcoming new album Love What Survives on September 8 via Warp Records.

Speaking of the album, Mount Kimbie said: “We’re both excited to announce that our new album, ‘Love What Survives’ will be released on the 8th of September on Warp Records. It’s been a fascinating process that has changed us as a band and we’re feeling great about how it’s come together. Can’t wait to share our third album with you”.

After releasing three new collaborative tracks: We Go Home Together, with James Blake, Marilyn, with Micachu, Blue Train Lines, with King Krule, Mount Kimbie today dropped their latest offering Delta.

Director Frank Lebon on the video:

“We follow Milson Pulse on 21/05/17; the day he is convinced to plan and take part in a robbery lead by his girlfriend. It is also the day Milson goes missing. On a journey through his fragile mind Milson experiences chameleonic spasms during the stress he is under.
I like to believe that Milson Pulse came to the conclusion a change is as good as a rest”.

Love What Survives is out September 8 on Warp. The album is a follow-up to their acclaimed 2013 LP, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. Find details of Mount Kimbie’s upcoming tour dates here.
