Four Tet – There Is Love in You

Kieran Hebden’s knack of being able to take sounds from a wide variety of musical genres is something that isn’t often seen in records today. Whilst cynicism might lead you to the belief that such a varied musical palette could only lead to scattershot and confused sounding albums, There Is...
