Music Inc

inc_no_world_cover

Recently discovered and very much enjoyed, Inc are brothers Andrew and David Aged based in LA who are signed to 4AD. This however is not the music you’d expect from a label that brought you This Mortal Coil and Throwing Muses.

This is a kind of twisted, slightly wonky R’n’B, which has been back in vogue as a musical genre after years in the fashion wilderness.

Think How to Dress Well or even Blood Orange. However, Inc have their own mellow vibe and a quality of song that puts them a cut above many of their peers. There is an element of The XX or perhaps The Cure circa ‘Seventeen Seconds’ in their fine debut album, which retrospectively I pronounce one of last years best.
