Louis Cole is a Los Angeles-based singer songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. Celebrated as one of the world’s most future-sonic-funk drummers and co-founder of KNOWER, his mission is “to create deep feelings through music.” Cole has proudly been DIY to date, amassing millions of views with his viral videos like ‘Bank Account’, and arrives with his third album ‘Time’ out now on Brainfeeder.
‘Time’ is – a casual but addictive LP, with a blend of quick-fire, hook-laden electro-funk bullets and wistful, soft-focus balladry – and it’s compelling. “A lot of it is little thoughts, that I made into big songs… blasts of inspiration that I was lucky enough to receive.”
Louis’s new album features his friend Thundercat (with whom he worked on “Drunk” co-writing ‘Bus In The Streets’ and ‘Jameel’s Space Ride’) who returns the favour, contributing lead vocals on ‘Tunnels In The Air’. KNOWER’s Genevieve Artadi, and acclaimed jazz pianist and experimental composer Brad Mehldau also pop up on ‘When You’re Ugly’ and ‘Real Life’ respectively. Furthermore, ‘Last Time You Went Away’ features a 23-piece string orchestra – the Rochester Stringz from Eastman School of Music.
‘Delightfully sly and off-kilter.” – Pitchfork (7.6)
“Slap bass, exported from Mark King, Art Of Noise-style synth stabs and brilliant kooky brass interjections pepper this simple groove, that bubbles with style and panache.” – DJ Mag (8.5 track review – When You’re Ugly)
“With the renaissance of funk and jazz inspired electronica hitting us hard Cole’s DIY work ethic feels fresh.” – The 405 (8/10)
“High-end DIY R&B” – Uncut (8/10)
“A jazz-literate multi-instrumentalist making harmonically complex R&B, Cole can be compared to Jacob Collier” – Uncut (8/10)
“An idiosyncratic but loveable selection of fresh songs” – Electronic Sound
“Refreshing” – The Line Of Best Fit
