Mount Kimbie announces US tour dates

Playing LA, SF, Chicago, Toronto and Brooklyn...

There’s nothing better to me than the feeling of having a friend send you a track that they’ve expressly picked out to send to you via Google Chat, and you click that link and sorta think “well I’m sure hope this is worth my time” considering everyone is just all up in your grill and trying to send you music links day in and day out claiming each one is better than the next. And that link just so happens to be a new project you’ve never heard of before called Mount Kimbie and the song just happens to be “Mayor”…

Those really are the good moments. I’ve totally been enamored with this UK outfit since that first Gchat message a few years ago, and sadly I’ve never been able to catch the band live. That changes soon, though — the group has announced a set of dates in August state-side in addition to the already announced dates around the rest of the world.

They also put out an accompanying mix to help hype up the tour, which is a super interesting listen.
