Four Tet – There is Love in You (Album Review)

Artist: Four Tet
Title: There is Love in You
Label: Domino
Released: 25th January, 2010

Kieran Hebden is back with another slice of ‘organic’ electronica. This time around however, the twisted samples are perched atop a more consistent dance rhythm, influenced by a recent residency at London club Plastic People. “[They] gave me a monthly thing…I was there throughout the whole making of the record,” Hebden explains in a recent Pitchfork interview, “I worked on the tracks so they sounded as good as possible in there.” Opener Angel Echoes combines sliced up vocal snippets with eastern guitars, while the lengthy Love Cry is the closest descendant of previous Four Tet work, a melee of note-repeat samples over a driving break beat. “Love Cry was the first track I did,” explains Hebden, “I wanted to make something that was for the night.” Standout track, Circling, is classic Four Tet, a hypnotic piece with harmonising guitars that build to a satisfying conclusion.
Overall a proficient and progressive effort that grows stronger with each listen.
