Kindness: World Restart feat. Kelela & Ade

Devonté Hynes' piano improvisation, Kindness' "World Restart," a look back at Secret Machines and more in the music we tweeted this week

British musician Adam Bainbridge, aka Kindness, mixes pop’s lightness and accessibility with some experimental fringes. The first single off of his upcoming sophomore album Otherness, “World Restart,” is a great example of such. Impeccably recorded saxophone, bass and drums set up the foundation for a funky downtempo groove, and the soulful duet between singers Kelela and Ade is supported by a soothing, communal chorus. With each listen, Bainbridge’s thoughtful production becomes more evident, like the interesting “breath” taken at 1:28. Otherness drops 14 October 2014 via Female Energy/Mom + Pop Records and features Robyn and more.
