Album Review

Kieran Hebden's first Four Tet full-length in four years comes after a parade of collaboration albums, DJ dates, remixes, and one EP that sounded strikingly like John Carpenter soundtracking the original Halloween film. Appropriately, There Is Love in You is a reset album, one where Hebden pares his music down to the essentials. (Sorry, no dubstep workouts or pastoral ballads to be found here.) It's the most natural he's sounded on record in years, much more assured than Everything Ecstatic, which bore the brunt of Hebden's wish to snip the folktronica tag by floating an array of (somewhat) iconoclastic tracks. Here, the music consists of little more than soft tones, muted beats, and overlaid music-box melodies. Perhaps not a recipe for greatness, but in keeping with the axiom that a great artist can always shine no matter the materials or medium, There Is Love in You is an accomplished, beautiful record (despite the lack of shiny bits). Vocals, where they appear, are wordless and textural; the few samples are glitchy but warm and hypnotic. The nine-minute single "Love Cry" sounds like Carl Craig's Innerzone Orchestra making an epic children's record. Overall, There Is Love in You has the spartan precision of Phillip Glass but also, surprisingly, the warmth and vitality of classic Cluster as well. From his debut, Hebden has always made the more alien side of electronic music sound warm and inviting; this not only accomplishes that, but ranks with his best.

Customer Reviews

Could there be a better start to the year?

Mesmerising... A stunning album, which absolutely delivers - everything I've come to expect from Four Tet; beautiful melodies, laid back beats and great vocal work which combine to clearly signal the return of this wonderful artist. Angel Echoes is a perfect opening, strangely entrancing and so easy to listen to. Already my year has been made!


Sleep, eat food, listen to this album, have visions.

Seriously mellifluent

If you put a gun to the collective head of Sigur Ros and ordered them to record a trance album or die and Sigur Ros had never heard of trance music and you did not have two free hands to place a handy to-hand trance album on your portable CD player because of the gun you are holding and lack of a megahandy ipod to just thumbpress and Sigur Ros had never ever heard of trance music so you had to sort of explain verbally what trance music was and then Sigur Ros acted on your instructions then There Is Love In You might have been the result.
I find the more mellifluent laminations of Kieran Hebden a joy to listen to and have been playing this album repeatedly through commuter-gridlock to heart-cohering effect. Highly recommended IMO. Unlike the first sentence of this review, I find nothing superfluous, arrogant or strained in any of the nine arrangements.


Born: 1980 in London, England

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Spawned by the urge to do something apart from his post-rock band Fridge, Kieran Hebden's Four Tet project balances organic and programmed sounds. Hebden formed Fridge with Sam Jeffers and Adem Ilhan while still in high school. When Fridge went on temporary hiatus for Jeffers and Ilhan to attend college, Hebden spent time playing with ideas gained from hip-hop and electronica that he hadn't had time to develop. Eager to experiment, Hebden bought a computer and began collecting drum and sound samples....
