Clark - "The Grit In The Pearl"

New MusicadminComment

English electronic music producer Christopher Clark just released his latest full-length on Warp Records this month. It's self-titled. Of the songs I've heard thus far, I'm finding it much more experimental and intriguing than his last album, Iradelphic, and "The Grit In The Pearl" is moment that must be highlighted.

The bouncy, overlapping synth leads are complimented with a driving kick drum that really brings clarity and order to the track as it continues to build this amorphous wall of reverb-slathered tones. It's focused, but incredibly explorative as well--especially with that noisy drone in the song's second half.
