Kindlinn is an EP of regal love songs at heart, and "Lydia" is the courting ritual—the rolling, Max Cooper-style basslines are the butterflies in your stomach, and the little glissandos are hiccups of excitement. A graceful synth wiggles up and down before blooming into full-on Dark Side Of The Moon noodling.
Getting down and dirty, "Kindlinn" is based on a gurgling bassline, passionate synth screeches and stiff piano samples. It has a tender frame, however, padded by horns that keep it graceful even at its most tempestuous. "Rain Raker" reprises "Kindlinn"'s melody, but it's elegiac this time, unspooling into a warm glow as it slowly fades into sleep. Though it might be a bit throwback, Kindlinn is a well-rounded EP that massages all the Kompakt pleasure centres.
