UNDER THE RADAR: Sam Amidon – “Juma Mountain”

UNDER THE RADAR: Sam Amidon – “Juma Mountain”.

The experimental folk musician has built his career by covering and reshaping old songs, usually folk-music traditionals. But on his new album The Following Mountain, Amidon has put together a set of completely new songs, though he did take some of the lyrics from old songs.

First single “Juma Mountain” is warm and comforting but also spacey and unmoored, and it’s a very promising first taste of an album that could turn out to be something special.

UNDER THE RADAR: Mount Kimbie are back with “We Go Home Together”, a brand new single featuring James Blake.

Frank Lebon directs the accompanying visuals. “It’s a pleasure to work with old friend and one time band mate James Blake again,” Mount Kimbie’s Kai Campos notes.

The two-and-a-half minute cut is the first proper release since 2013 album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth and its CSFLY Remixes EP. Blake’s latest LP, The Colour In Anything, was released last year.
