LONG PLAYER OF THE DAY: Fort Romeau, ‘Kingdoms’

Fort Romeau - 'Kingdoms'

Fort Romeau - 'Kingdoms' The Artist/Album: Fort Romeau, Kingdoms (100% Silk, 2012)

Our Review: Fort Romeau’s debut album is yet another example of how limiting and downright idiotic the ‘hipster house’ tag is, plowing any bedroom producer preconceptions over with lonesome vocal samples and lush 4/4 landscapes that have more in common with the deep dance roots of Chicago and Detroit than anything remotely trendy. Definitely one of the more promising entries on 100% Silk’s growing roster, and from La Roux’s keyboardist no less.
