Chris Clark – Empty The Bones Of You

Decent second album by Warp's apprentice Aphex

Trending Now

Clark fits neatly?too neatly, perhaps?onto the Warp roster of electronic mavens. While his earlier records flirted with the avant-acid perpetuated by the label, Empty The Bones Of You is rooted solidly in Warp’s creepy quasi-ambient department. As such, there’s plenty here that’ll appeal to fans of Boards Of Canada and of The Aphex Twin’s more peaceable moments. The discreet melodies, the muddy off-kilter beats and the generally disconcerting air are beautifully realised. But the overall result is rarely quite as haunting or individual as Clark must have envisaged.
