King Creosote & Jon Hopkins- "Bubble"


A new video from the new collaborative album between electronica producer Jon Hopkins and one of the UK's more prolific singer-songwriters, King Creosote.

I wouldn't call myself an expert on either of these musicians, but I knew enough to be kind of surprised by the pairing. Hopkins' and Creosote's creative minds might be closer than I originally assumed, though. On "Bubble," the light electronics complements the songwriting perfectly. They add a nice texture without taking away from the warm, soft, and acoustic nature of the instrumentation.

Dig on the video above, and look for this new collaborative album from this duo, Diamond Mine, on Domino Recs.
