KINKAJOUS - HIDDEN LINES VINYL (LP)
Release Date: 7th June 2019
Debut album from the internationally-assembled, London-based electronica-jazz collective is an absolute wonder! Hidden Lines blurs the lines between electronica and jazz in the same way the likes of GoGo Penguin, Portico Quartet and Mammal Hands have done in recent times. Fully of emotive swings in mood and time signatures, this is an album that will take you on a journey worth taking!

"‘Hidden Lines’ is the debut album from rising jazz/electronica outfit Kinkajous. Recorded by Jordan Rakei drummer Jim Macrae and mixed by producer Brendan Williams (GoGo Penguin/Dutch Uncles), the sublime, interwoven melodies and drums invoke the likes of Steve Reich, Floating Points and BADBADNOTGOOD. The London based quintet (led by saxophonist/clarinettist Adrien Cau and drummer/producer Benoît Parmentier, joined by pianist Maria Chiara Argirò, bassist Andres Castellanos and Jack Doherty on synths) conjure a passionate, introspective and powerful music, that draws from their shared love for jazz and electronic music. The album includes the soaring, futuristic teaser single “Jupiter”, and singles “Black Idiom Pt. 2”, ethereal and arresting, as well as the triumphantly energetic “Loke”."
