Next week, London trio LV will be releasing its debut album, Routes, via Blackdown's Keysound Recordings label. The full-length is actually credited to LV featuring Joshua Idehen; Idehen is a vocalist who plays a prominent role on the record and previously appeared on the group's 38 EP. As for the music, LV has concocted a unique effort that combines upfront UK rhythms (and riddims) with elements of live instrumentation and hints of South African house, a sound explored previously on last year's "Boomslang" single on Hyperdub. It's an impressive effort from a veteran assemblage of producers, and all 12 tracks are streaming below.
