Kindness (AKA Adam Bainbridge) has been a bit mum since his purple-ized remix of Blood Orange‘s “Uncle ACE” surfaced a few months back. Today we’re getting our first look at his Otherness LP (a follow-up to his stellar debut record World, You Need A Change Of Mind ) with the arrival of the wholly funked-out cut “World Restart,” featuring Kelela and Ade. Bainbridge takes the new wave funk of The Talking Heads and gives it a little elbow grease, throwing in some punctuating horn lines and a low-end that would leave Bootsy proud.
Ade and Kelela spin their sultry vox treatments over a track that’s half-stuck in the meat of the ’80s and somehow has a foot in 2021, all at the same damn time. Otherness will land on us October 14th via Female Energy Records with a heavy list of lo-fi funkateers gracing Bainbridge’s sophomore LP, including the aforementioned soulstress, Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, Robyn and Tawiah. As you can see, there’s plenty to look forward to from the homie Bainbridge. Just keep your ear to the ground for those frequencies. Stream Kindness’ latest single “World Restart” below and check back for preorder information in the coming weeks.
