Reviewed 2017-06-08 
Newest LP from Chris Clark. Electronica with ambient, techno, IDM and noise influences. Very erratic with a tendency for heavy beats and atmospheric detours. Features the human voice much more than ever before. I came into this thinking it couldn’t match Clark’s self-titled record but I’m actually surprised by how much I like it.

Favorites: 2, 3, 4, 5, 7

1. (1:18) Spring But Dark—Ominous ambient, some indistinct voice fragments.
2. (4:27) ** Butterfly Prowler—Frantic, urgent, excited. Killer groove. Beats get slower and heavier towards end.
3. (5:43) ** Peak Magnetic—Dreamier atmospheric beats. Celestial noise finish.
4. (5:08) ** Hoova—Heavy, thudding military beats start things off. Long, hazy ambient outro with stray voices.
5. (4:18) ** Slap Drones—Dark, bassy. Fat beats and chiming keyboard riffs, voices. Play this at the end of the world.
6. (2:01) Aftermath—Beatless ambient. Silvery strings, soft oooooos. Delicate underwater feeling.
7. (6:36) *** Catastrophe Anthem—Cataclysmic, densely churning ambient. Steadily rises in volume.
8. (4:07) Living Fantasy—Shifting processed tones and glittering keys, electronics. Gets into something really dreamy. Strong vox and claps towards end.
9. (9:57) Un U.K.—Opens with multiple pulsing layers of vox, like Lusine. Morphs into a noisy beat-driven style and finishes in uplifting, orchestral ambience. Feels a little aimless.
