Looks like next tuesday from Noon - 2 gmt he'll be doing an NTS show, and he indicates that he is looking forward to playing some 'fresh new material'

isn't that quite an old photo. Pretty sure it was Photoshopped by someone from watmm years ago during the wheelchair debacle.

 

Clark for me is thus:

Turning Dragon

Body Riddle

Clarence Park

S/T has its moments for sure (so same as most folks here really'

 

Didn't really feel Death Pig as an album but the accompanying live show was good.

 

Move back to Ingerland Mr Clark, pls

I never though I would live in a world where the new two track EP (commissioned by a sound library company?) from Chris Clark is better than the new 5 track Aphex Twin EP, and yet here we are.

 

I would have agreed at any time from the Syro era but Collapse is actually really g.o.o.d. This single's still great anyway, the harpsichord track more than the piano one. It feels to me like he comes up with great grooves but then he doesn't really know what to do with them so the tracks fizzle out unremarkably at some point, but still. Really enjoyable

I'm not getting Collapse at all, I think Syro is very good. Will agree that most of Clark's songs these days have a bit of that fizzle out problem (Death Peak had a fizzle in, fizzle middle, fizzle out thing), but I can usually look past it when the meat of the tracks are good, as is definitely the case here. These two tracks are seriously interesting and different and just damned catchy/groovy for the most. Hope he's got more like this in him.

What's your postal address so I can send you an ear cleaning kit

Feelin this H A R D

They are both very good songs. I'm a bit surprised WATMM is so underwhelmed, if Aphex put out one of these that forum would be full shin high of fanboy jizz

come on guys this is really bad

Berlin ruined Clark.

 

Uhm, don't you find this kind of offensive?

 

Harpsichord is amazing, Piano does not much to me or maybe it needs more spins, always waiting for a heavy bassdrum to kick in, which never comes. Anyway this gives me hope that the next full-length could be less fuzzy and more adventurous again  :emotawesomepm9:

Sorry, but why? I kind of like harpsichord now that I've listened to it a couple of times. Piano not so much.

First listen to this EP this morning via Spotify - surprisingly different and honestly doesn't sound like Clark at all. Which, based on his last 3, is a good thing. Seems like he's trying something new. I like it, although it brings to mind some recent, young producers.

      He posted this yesterday, what could it be?

      Has he left Warp? His latest single and TV score have been self released even though the last Panthers, an album in the same style, was on warp.
      In this interview here:
      https://truantsblog.com/2019/truancy-volume-247-clark/
      it says: "Following an expansive discography of LPs on Warp from 2001 to 2017"
      Does that mean he doesn't release on the label anymore? I hope not but I'd still follow him of course.
       
      An argument against it would be that he is still listed in the active artists section on warp.net
      PS. Lol to this text color.
