Album review

Clinic - Winchester Cathedral

Acclaim across the Atlantic has a tendency to change bands, but not intransigent tykes Clinic, whose last album Walking With Thee wowed America's indie elite. Buoyed by this success, they play to their strengths on Winchester Cathedral, crafting another delirious half-hour of, mainly, mannered asthmatic psychobilly. Having spent six long years honing their singular style of claustrophobic voodoo blues, Clinic finally sound content, loosening up on neuro-disco oddity "The Majestic #2"and queasy spectral waltz "Vertical Take-Off In Egypt". Remarkably, this bizarre outfit just got weirder, and how it suits them.
