Released: Nov 2012
Label: Domino Recording Co.
Clinic have always been excellent purveyors of paranoid art rock, but on their seventh release, instead of conveying that sense of anxiety through tense post-punk, they let their jams unravel into loose, drifting, psychedelic grooves. Still, they keep it all moving with urgent propulsion, as they travel from woozy psychedelia ("Misty") to free jazz ("Cosmic Radiation," "For the Season") to dub ("Miss You"). Synths wiggle and wobble enough to give you motion sickness, while blasts of melodica ("See Saw") and organ -- as well as Ade Blackburn's aloof monotone -- act as both a siren and a salve.
