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.
