Welcome to Rob Hakimian’s website, collecting together the best of his writing from over the years.

Album Review: Mount Kimbie - Love What Survives

The first and most obvious thing is that from the very beginning you could never classify Love What Survives as an electronic album, despite the perennial synth use and the Warp stamp. It further shows that Mount Kimbie is a band, not a pair of producers. Although further working towards their own sound that they’ve always desired to make, it is also true that they seem to be relatively absent here.

- I reviewed the slightly underwhelming third Mount Kimbie album Love What Survives over on The 405
