You don’t tend to think of post-dubstep as having also-rans. But just as Britpop needed Menswear and the new rock revolution needed Jet, so Mount Kimbie et al need London-via-Oxford’s Stubborn Heart. This is a chilling record, as melancholic vocals split awkwardly over oddly syncopated drum sounds. At times, like on the perfectly understated ‘To Catch A Spark’, it can take your breath away.
