Hear Four Tet’s New Album “There Is Love In You”

Four Tet aka Kieran Hebden has a new record There Is Love In You (album art above), that is being released next week on Jan. 25, 2010 via Domino Records (which we discussed before here).

Kieran has posted the album on Soundcloud to stream for FREE for this week only, so go check it out while you can. If you end up reading this later (after the stream is taken down), then go and buy the album already, it’s fantastic.

Edit: Four Tet’s Soundcloud stream has been removed. However, for the time being Domino Records is also streaming the record on Soundcloud here.

In anticipation of There Is Love In You, Four Tet has done a few interviews lately and given the the eclectic taste Kieran Hebden is known to have, they are always an interesting read. Check out his recent interviews with Pitchfork and BBC (wordpress won’t let me embed the BBC video interview so go see Four Tet’s site for that). In both interviews Kieran mentions Joy Orbison (if the name doesn’t ring a bell you can familiarize yourself with Joy Orbison’s music here) and Floating Points (check out the Floating Points myspace) as two new producers he’s been a fan of lately.

Visit Four Tet’s website for the album stream, BBC interview, information on his upcoming tour dates (he’s touring the US and UK), and everything else Four Tet related.

Maybe I’m just giddy from hearing the Four Tet album before it’s released, but I’d have to say that There Is Love In You is an early frontrunner for 2010 album of the year. Yes, it’s that good.

And while I’m on my Four Tet binge, check out this 2009 XL8R interview where Four Tet discusses his inspirations and gives some insight on the evolution of his sound leading up to There Is Love In You.

Joy Orbison Remixes Four Tet and Releases Mixes Galore


More Four Tet related news, but this time Four Tet is more the byproduct and up and coming dubstep producer Joy Orbison is the main feature. London’s Peter O’Grady aka Joy Orbison has recently prepared an excellent remix of Four Tet’s new single “Love Cry” (which can be heard below) and continues to build the anticipation for his upcoming debut album on Hotflush Recordings (no major details on that yet). In other news, Four Tet and Joy Orbison will be playing a show together at The Dome in London on Feb. 12, 2010.

There has not been a whole lot of output from Joy Orbison to date; however, what he has released has already won over many critics and fans alike. Joy initially splashed into the spotlight with his exquisite dubstep track “Hyph Mngo” (see below) which was released along with another quality song “Wet Look”. He also has a few other tunes on his myspace but other than that, all we have to listen to are a few long mixes he’s done.

Fortunately, you can listen to/download the mixes freely below and if you look closely (tracklists for each below) you can see that he snuck a few more of his own songs onto the fine Doldums Mix including “Hyph Mngo”.

Joy Orbison is a name you are not going to want to forget (and aren’t likely too), so keep on the lookout for him in the future.
