lv & joshua idehen - Islands
Keysound's most rooted unit return with a lean suite of broken beat and Afro-centric mutations on 'Islands'. Tied together with Josh Idehen's observant, poetic narration, 'Islands' follows the much-loved 'Routes' (2011) LP with a bright, spacious haul, flexing from wicked breakbeat and bass agitations to eerier ambient interludes. It feels constantly in flux between an omnipresent urban dread and moments of elation, tracing the underground/overground, hyper-capitalist/realist topologies and analogues of London town itself, from the deft bounce of 'New Pen' to lonely, solemn close of 'Island' via the juggling drums of 'Talktrim', the humid ghetto percolations of 'Shake' and 'Double Decker Back Seat' or 'Waiting for the Night', and the moody deviations of 'That Old Darkness' or 'Out Of The Blue'.
