Legacy Pet is a great track, I think he played it on his warp30 mix as well. Excited to hear the other one. Also lol at that single cover, is that Clark himself?

Clark is an interesting artist for me. I enjoy plenty of tracks off of all of his albums (excluding Kiri and The Last Panthers, it was just fine but nothing worthy of going back to), yet all of his albums structures feel so frontloaded, its hard to choose what my favorite album of his would be, since I enjoy all of them (though Body Riddle did not click with me to have a replayable track, perhaps a relisten could help me think more than "this sounds cool"?).

Either way I am looking forward to this since I admire Clark's work. Time to take a peak at his Warp30 mix since I never have somehow ?

I'd believe it, even if it seemed like he was getting more well-known with his last few albums.

I don't think WARP 'drops' artists like Clark - I think it may be more a case that he's fulfilled his contract, and possibly he chose not to renew, or he did, but there is material he wanted to release himself, etc. - there could be a myriad of reasons we're not privy to.

man, I used to love clark. And I hate to be negative - but I feel like I can already hear this new material without even putting it on

September 19 quote is accurate for the B-side, "Legacy Pet". Not a bad track, but it's predicable.

Bleep mail out advertising the new release for sale, so its not a falling out.

Well, to be fair it would have to be a pretty serious falling out for them to 'blacklist' Clark's work - plus Bleep stands to make money off of a popular artist and a new release (regardless of label).

I like it for what it is, it's a nice slow club banger and it makes me curious to hear Branding Problem

      Chris Clark returns with the much anticipated follow up to 'Body Riddle' & 'Turning Dragon' with "Totems Flare", out 13th July 2009. 'Totems Flare' will be sure to blow your mind, an album that his last EP 'Growl's Garden' only hinted at, in terms of potential.
      Eight years, five albums, untold EP tracks and stints living in Brighton, Birmingham and Berlin later, Clark's sound is more developed than ever - Totems Flare is an elegant meeting of past and present sounds.
      Chris sees Body Riddle (2006), Turning Dragon (2008) and Totems Flare (2009) as forming a “trilogy”. These albums have seen a steady and clear progression, from the baroque melodics of 'Body Riddle' through the hard techno drive of 'Turning Dragon' to 'Totems Flare', which combines the key qualities of both into yet another huge leap forward.
      The increase in ambition, scale and panache of 'Totems Flare' is as big as that which 'Body Riddle' represented, and early reactions suggest the public response could be at least as significant. And, vitally, this further leap forward came naturally.
      “The only hard thing with this album,” says Chris, “was selecting the tracks: I've got so many that it was a constant process of editing and chiselling down the structure until it was completely watertight. I've got enough tracks..... I could stop writing new tunes for the next three years if I wanted to, but I can't resist it....I'm already gone off on another plane. T'will be interesting melding this with the new Totem live show.”
      Standby for more info and previews to follow soon!
