Silver And The Sun

46

Chris Clark followed up his excellent ‘Iradelphic’ album towards the end of last year with a self-titled seventh long player for Warp (no less than thirteen years after his debut album release) which stripped back his sound and built on the techno and rave direction of his ‘Phosphor’ live shows. Intended to be listened to as a whole from beginning to end, the thirteen tracks presented his sound as dynamic sonic structures ranging back and forth between from the mechanical thump of ‘Winter Linn’ through to the frantic bleep of ‘There’s A Distance in You’ and the towering heights of ‘The Grit In The Pearl’. His next release which is out towards the end of the month is a continuation on a theme, of sorts, and collects two reworkings of album tracks alongside two new productions that were originally made to play out a gigs and gradually formed the ‘Rave Flame’ EP, of which Clark himself has said ‘I love the feel of an almost overwhelming percussive violence being suddenly flooded with heartache and melody. I find that dynamic exhilarating’.
