Here at Good2b we listen to Kindness almost every day. His first album World, you need a change of mind (Polydor, 2012) conquered us straight away with its sounds laden with 80s sensuality, Womack & Womack style. Chameleon-like British musician Adam Bainbridgecomposed an essential album, which played live with full instrumentation sounds even better, with him swaying his hips in the most elegant English style.

This album has more postmodern and experimental traces, but the truth is that after listening listen, I just hooked to the same extent that the outstanding debut.

A few days ago Kindness released his much-awaited second album Otherness, another musical treatise influenced by black music styles from soul to blues to hip-hop and jazz without losing its 80s edge or its R&B beat. The 10-track album features RobynBlood Orange,Kelela and Jimmy Douglass (Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott). The album isn’t as surprising as his first one and, in general, it is more postmodern and experimental, but after listening listening to it a ffew times, I’m hooked to it with the same intensity.
