Clark - Truncation Horn Turning Dragon is out now on Warp Records.
"Truncation Horn" is a hell of a two word summary for this track. It sounds like someone's squelched the audio from a jazzercize VHS through a meat grinder and recorded the result. The drums crackle, and the stringwork - whatever portion you're able to pull out - seems struck by a wrench rather than strummed.
Yelle - Je Veux Te Voir (Club-Club Mix) Pop-Up will be released April 1st.
In a way, foreign pop music is a blessing because it releases us simpleton American critics (read: me) from the burden of having to say something really insightful. My four years of French dumped out a trapdoor in the back of my head, so all I understand on this track is the handclaps and the club-ready synths and the "you go girl!" attitude. Thank God.
