Clinic return with "Visitations" in October
Clinic's new album, ‘Visitations’ will be released on 16 October through Domino, and will be preceded by the single ‘Harvest’ which is out 2 October.
The album promises an intensely upbeat and fuzz based party feel. A stark contrast to the darker/dense sound of 'Winchester Cathedral'. Clinic recently played many of the new songs at their ATP show (which you can read here).
'Tusk' was also released as a download only single earlier this year, through their new site http://www.clinicvoot.org/. The site archive contains a wealth of audio and film material.
The album tracklisting will be (including descriptions ripped off the PR sheet);
'Family' - a ballroom favourite,marred by fuzz.
‘Animal/Human' - delves into social engineering and impact on human decency.
'Gideon' - raw,neo-12 bar outing with illegal symbols.
'Harvest (within you)' - laid back and groovy modern classic.
'Tusk (album version)' - intense punk song,about some people's need to lie to exist.
'Paradise' - very mellow yet emotional dancefloor excursion.
'Children of Kellogg' - the lynchpin of the new record. Proto-metal riff, xylophone and Johnny Mathis-styled segue/coda.
'If you could read your mind' - medieval acid punk.
'Jigsaw Man' - acoustic pagan celebration, contains the opening line "Mother melted in the fridge".
'Interlude' - erotic break-up song.
'The New Seeker' - communal fuzz rebirth with skewed electronica.
'Visitations' - fragile and traumatic set closer. Features the line "One more offer one more lie, are temptations in your life".
