RECORD REVIEWS AND NEW RELEASES

CA048A: Aeriae: Peril Triage
  Aeriae continues to carve out his unique space in modern electronic music production with Peril Triage, the new 7-track EP out now on Clan Analogue. A hyperkinetic evocation of psychological response, Peril Triage emerged following Aeriae's touring to support his enigmatic 2014 album release Victris.

Honing the Aeriae controllerism setup through live performance enabled heightened levels of instinct and drama during the atypically rapid (for Aeriae) composition and production process for Peril Triage. Previous Aeriae releases were heedless of whether they could be reproduced live in any practical sense. With Peril Triage, Aeriae takes a set produced especially for live performance back into the studio environment to synthesise the two approaches. The result is a gapless forty-three minute set of labyrinthine synth programming and rising tempo. Beneath the pace and skittering beat design, compositional structures morph slowly via the producer's trademark serialist melodic figures and intricate sound desi

Infusion Vol. 2
Infusion Vol. 2 assembles many months of single song releases together into a new compilation focused on various flavors of electronic music. As a series, Infusion seeks to curate artists, songs, and genres to deliver a weekly dose of modern aural surprise and delight. One by one, each tune was released paired with a complimentary piece of artwork from visual artist Joyce Su, creating a story told through each publication. Together, these twelve distinct songs create a diverse yet coherent listening experience; the selection of songs becomes stronger than any of the individual offerings, culminating in a collection larger than just the sum of its parts.

The compilation starts strong with a red hot Hip Hop track from Vokab Kompany featuring vocals from Lyrics Born. The next three tracks from new-to-Gravitas artists Pigeon Hole, Elevated Mind, and Contra promptly take the comp to a heavier place with some hard hitting bass. Zebbler Encanti Experience, Unlimited Gravity, and Bassline Drift all further rep Read More...

Lil' Mo - Pain & Paper - Album Review
Pain & Paper is the third studio release from Lil' Mo. Formerly the protg of Missy Elliott, Lil' Mo has been known for her popular collaborations with the likes of Jay Z, Next, Missy Elliott, Fabolous and Ja Rule (Lil' Mo was the predecessor to Ashanti).

Shaya - Fallen Awake - Album Review
In an era where young Hip Hop artists are releasing more albums than many of their veteran counterparts have in an entire lifetime, it is refreshing to hear of an artist who has taken the time to perfect their craft, waiting for the right time to launch themselves onto the music landscape. This is certainly the case when speaking of Bay Area-bred emcee Shaya and his fiery opening salvo Fallen Awake.

N.E.R.D. - Seeing Sounds - Album Review
Experimental music it's something you seldom encounter in mainstream music; that is, of course, unless it's N.E.R.D.. It has been five years since the release of their last album, Fly Or Die, but Pharrell, Chad and Shae have brought back their original sounds with the synesthesia inspired title Seeing Sounds. In case you are wondering what synesthesia is well, just wiki it. After all, we are exploring the musical experiments of N.E.R.D., not those behind the psychological phenomenon that gave name to their album.

Time Machine - Life Is Expensive - Album Review
With a sound that would have been as perfectly at home in a 1980s roller rink disco as it is now in the blingtone era, Southern California trio Time Machine (consisting of emcees Biscuit & Jet Set Jay and DJ/producer Mekalek) have returned with the retro-tinged good vibrations of Life Is Expensive, the follow up to 2004's Slow Your Roll.

Talisman - Don't Play With Fyah
Format: Album

Release: 17.03.2017

Label: Sugar Shack Records

EAN: 5052571069523

Explicit lyrics: no

File under: Roots Reggae

Talisman's new album "Don't Play with Fyah" is a revelation. Most bands with a history that stretches back four decades are content to go through the motions, their creative peak somewhere in the past, not Talisman. Their new album includes some of the strongest material they've ever recorded, with seven brand new songs and the corresponding dub counter parts; this is their finest album to date.

Featured Tracks:

Relijan / Talkin' Revolution / She Look Like Reggae

Aeriae presents Victris
CA043 on Clan Analogue Recordings

Clan Analogue's latest release, Aeriae's second album Victris, has been quietly making its mark as a modern IDM gem in the Australian electronic music soundscape.

A thirteen-page booklet by Wade Clarke (aka Aeriae) with notes on the inspiration and techniques behind each of Victris's tracks, can be downloaded at aeriae.com/victris.pdf

The first person to email clan@clananalogue.org and tell us which music software was used to compose the original version of the Aeriae track 'Ai No Kuni' will be sent a free CD copy of the album.

Ambitious in texture, programming and melodic design, Victris explores the modern sonic parameters of electronica through the prism of deep historical insight into music, production and technology. With Bach-influenced melodic counterpoint, Spector-inspired mono mixes for discipline and impact, and the use of sonic detritus from the world of obsolete technology, colliding concepts of sound have been reconfigured for new expression in Read More...
