the clientele

Mentioned previously in these pages, admittedly several missives ago, another album we are yet to hear in full is the latest from the Clientele. This time through Bureau B sister label Tapete, the album by the way is called ‘Music For The Age Of Miracles’, we’ve  found ourselves somewhat smitten by ‘the museum of fog’ – a track delightfully weaved in an old peculiar soft psych fashioning that’s delicately teased in a becoming baroque braiding, beneath the quaint English eccentric rustic rubbings and ghostly narration unravels in a matter of fact casualness of a pub gig attended, the singer masked exerting an eerie supernatural craft rekindling the hopes and ambition of his former sixteen year old self, the sounds exquisitely despatched with the kind of mercurial touching that recalls the much missed magic theatre / ooberman. In addition, here’s the simply breath-taking murmur of the softly radiant Byrds-ian ‘everyone you meet’ – utterly adorable.
