"Racer" is the title track to a new game on Google Chrome that's either about racing or minimalistic '70s artwork. (Really, we can't tell.) According to the game's website , users can [...]

London electronic duo Mount Kimbie team up with neo-soul singer King Krule for "You Took Your Time", one of two such collaborations featured on the pair's sophomore LP, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth .

And as the duo build the track to a chaotic and fevered pitch, Krule is right there with them offering random yelps and wailing. Listen in below. [...]
