World, You Need a Change of Mind
Released: Mar 2012
Label: Female Energy
A little like James Blake, How To Dress Well and even The Weeknd, Kindness (the U.K.'s Adam Bainbridge) applies a hazy, nostalgic filter to the pop and R&B of the '80s and '90s on his debut album, turning out a dreamy set of synth-pop jams that reference the glossy synths and gated snares of Phil Collins, early Talk Talk and Scritti Politti. Philippe Zdar lends his hand to a production that's as rich as an éclair, and even if the songwriting doesn't always measure up, the album's pneumatic disco and lovers' pop stylings are plenty seductive on their own.
