If there’s one thing Kitsuné’s renowned for, apart from stylish garb, it’s its
flair. So being handed the Parisian label’s latest findings out of the talent
brewing in the USA today is a proper treat, as Kitsuné AMERICA, the
compilation series, never fails to deliver a fresh and innovative selection
of offbeat musical snapshots, even by American standards.
The French imprint, instrumental in putting Two Door Cinema Club,
Yelle, Hot Chip and numerous others on the map, is conquering the
US, picking up the country’s own local artists where it’s buzzin’.
After showcasing Childish Gambino, Toro Y Moi, Theophilus London,
Haerts and other prestigious artists on previous Kitsuné AMERICA
compilations, this 3rd edition keeps on favouring the thinking-outsidethebox
generation, with beats and grooves continuing their growing
domination and a slower, cooler vibe for sun-drenched days.
America is feeling adventurous, musicians are letting loose, striking
combinations of styles and sounds are taking place, and the audience is
listening. A perfect time for boss Gildas to invest in new exciting artists:
“We believe in those acts and want to help them develop. Our ear is
finely-tuned, we know a good tune when we hear one.”
Kitsuné AMERICA 3 is ideal to stream comfy at home or to drive down
Route 66 and experience what it’s all about.
