Kitsune America 3 (The Road Trip Issue)
If there's one thing Kitsun'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 Kitsun 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 Kitsun 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." Kitsun AMERICA 3 is ideal to stream comfy at home or to drive down Route 66 and experience what it's all about.
