EDITORS’ NOTES

Kindness, a.k.a. Adam Bainbridge, may look sullen on the cover of his sophomore album, but he has no reason to be. Along with peers Dev Hynes and Kelela, he's remaking pop music in his own experimental image. Otherness is a surreal conflation of funk, quiet storm, and wayward electronics, with vocals from Bainbridge and an array of guests. The stuttering, filtered groove of "Who Do You Love?” features dance-pop diva Robyn, while "I'll Be Back" is mournful smooth jazz with sprightly pianos and a house beat. Horns, fingersnaps, slap bass, Spanish guitar: everything's fair game in Bainbridge's sci-fi supper club vision.

Smooth Sounds

This is a great sound by an amazing artist — smooth, jazzy with some R & B thrown in. Check out the track with Robyn!
