Sound Mirrors

Sound Mirrors

Let’s just say it right at the start. In “Sound Mirrors” Coldcut have made the best album of their long and illustrious career. It’s not something you can state lightly, but there you are. 

Artist: Coldcut

Genre: Electronica

Label: Ninja Tune

Release date:

Their production has never sounded better, their ideas have never been more various or interesting, they’ve never had such a great cast of guests and then integrated them into their sound so well. Yes, it’s a record that is deeper, funkier, cleverer, more engaged and more engaging than anything they’ve done before. And, it follows from that, it’s deeper, funkier and cleverer than just about anything else around right now.

The album opens with “Man In A Garage,” a tune which instantly gives a big clue as to what “Sound Mirrors” is all about – the combination of great song writing with contemporary production smarts. John Matthias give a beautiful, low key, folk-edged performance while Matt Black and Jon More hook up a rhythm that wouldn’t sound out of place on an Aaliyah record. The result is an aching, melancholy glitch-blues.
