Kindness – “House” Video

Kindness is in town for his first-ever NYC show this week at Le Poisson Rouge, and right on time, this terrific video. They talk about indie music “teaching the kids to dance again,” but here Kindness’s Adam Bainbridge does one better: teaching the kids to make dance music. Again.

Kindness – “House”

Kindness is British-born singer/songwriter Adam Bainbridge and his band of soulful dance party creators/enthusiasts, an outfit in possession of the wonderful debut LP World, You Need A Change Of Mind.

Kindness – “SEOD”

Following up on Kindness’s “Cyan” is “SEOD,” a slab of spacious, sensual house-inflected turntable candy out on 12″ white vinyl with a dub mix by Philippe Zdar.

Kindness – “Cyan” Video

A couple weeks ago, whiteboy funk auteur Kindness awoke from a period of inactivity to drop “Kindness,” and now that wonky disco jam has a video that finds Adam Bainbridge strolling through NYC, whose store and street signage yield to the song’s lyrics. You’ll see what I mean. More »

Kindness – “Cyan”

Whiteboy funk auteur Kindness rarely surfaces, but when he does, he’s the creator of lean, fucked-up-sounding disco jams. The song was produced by Phillipe Zdar, who also engineered Phoenix’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix as well as The Rapture’s new one, In The Grace Of Your Love, and as soon as you start streaming the track, you’ll… More »
