Known as The White Buffalo, songwriter Jake Smith has resolutely charted his own single-minded musical course for more than a decade. His captivating live presence and workingman’s approach to his craft has earned him a loyal fan base across North America, as well as glowing reviews from press outlets including  Rolling Stone,
Entertainment Weekly,Paste, and more. Smith has toured alongside Ryan Bingham, Jack Johnson, Xavier Rudd, State Radio, Ziggy Marley, and most recently Flogging Molly, which brought him to Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver earlier this year. He has also been featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live – watch his performance  HERE.

Over the course of five albums, various EPs, and numerous prominent placements in such high-profile outlets as TV’s Sons of Anarchy and Californication, Smith has built a powerful body of work that marks him as a genuine original. The California-bred artist writes timeless, vividly detailed character studies, tapping into the emotional lives of various misfits, outsiders and troubled souls with insight and compassion. His songwriting is matched by his rough-hewn, deeply expressive voice, and by his distinctive instrumental arrangements, which are simultaneously intimate and epic.

“The voice inside him whirls… hitting the air like a fist.”

Jeffrey Fleishman, L.A. Times

“..he’s a turbo charged Bruce Springsteen, equal parts brain and brawn”

MOUNT KIMBIE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM LOVE WHAT SURVIVES OUT SEPTEMBER 8TH ON WARP RECORDS

July 12th, 2017

LISTEN TO “BLUE TRAIN LINES” FEAT KING KRULE) NOW

Mt. Kimbie - Love What Survives

TORONTO, ON – July 12, 2017  

From Mount Kimbie:

“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”

Love What Survives is the long awaited third studio album from Mount Kimbie. It’s the most confident statement of intent from the boundary-pushing duo yet, and an embodiment of their career-long musical progression

‘Blue Train Lines’ demonstrates the progression and evolutionary journey the band have embarked on since the release of 2013′s Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. The track centres on a motorik rhythm section, heightened and enhanced by long-time collaborator and friend King Krule’s jagged vocal bursts and pulsing synths.

The album is the product of three years of intense creative development, continually honed by the duo writing and rewriting their ideas to form something wholly idiosyncratic and personal. It brings together the voices of their close friends and collaborators – who together represent a corner of the UK’s young artistic talent -

James BlakeMicachu and King Krule, within the immersive, unique atmosphere of a Mount Kimbie album.

The record’s expansive nature is indebted to the fact it was made between London where Kai Campos resides and Los Angeles where Dom Maker moved in 2016. The duo would travel back and forth to work together, cultivating ideas in intensive sessions. For Maker, putting down roots in a foreign city with its cultural differences and geographical vastness was alienating at first but it gave fresh perspective and inspiration.

Over the past few months the band have released two tracks – the first, “We Go Home Together” featured James Blake, and more recently the their lullaby-esque collaboration with Micachu, “Marilyn”. Both tracks were accompanied with visual collaborations with the Lebon family: renowned 90s fashion photographer Mark Lebon made the video for Marilyn; his son Frank Lebon designed and features in the album artwork.

Mount Kimbie have also announced a European tour, which includes their biggest London headline to date at the Roundhouse. The live band, which also includes  two new live members, recently played to packed out audiences across the US. Full dates are listed on the band website :www.mountkimbie.com/live
