Clark: “Black Stone” (Iradelphic, Warp 2012)
A new video and clip from Chris Clark’s newest album, out this week on Warp. I picked it up a few days ago and I’m slowly digesting it. Like all of his music, it’s quite good but requires several listens to sink in…. that kind of good. This one’s quite out of character, an introspective solo piano piece. Perfect in its placement in the tracklist, and a lovely piece on its own, too… but those expecting goofy melodies or frenetic IDM beat programming are in for a shock.
