Chris Clark, "Alaska (1998 Tiny Person)"

Throughgout August I'll be posting new mp3s on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week, with assorted reviews, links and other nonsense in between. So to kick things off, here's a Japan-only track from Chris Clark's Empty the Bones of You:

Chris Clark, "Alaska (1998 Tiny Person)"

Cold and a bit distant, as the title might lead you to believe, but still fascinating. Lots of layered synths reminescent of classic Bola but with significantly harder beats. If you like it, be sure to buy Empty the Bones, one of the most criminally underrated albums of recent years. And download the earlier Clarence Park outtake "Guitar Solo" here.

Edit Rest in peace, Rick James. I'll save the witty crackpipe jokes, because that would be in poor taste, and, er, I can't think of any right now. And quoting Chapelle's Show just doesn't cut it, really...
