More Info

"Special 2lp + 7" vinyl set compiling both the "crackle of my soul" and the "up here in the clouds" albums. Recordings by Gordon Sharp (2001-2010) at Belmont shore (ca), mid-levels (hk) & Kobe (Japan) the mid-levels (hk) but manly at Roi vert, Okamoto, Japan. Cut at dubplates & mastering, Berlin, august 2010. Cindytalk have been active since 1982. During the 80s and the 90s their sound was defined by broken down rock structures and abstract piano ambience. A third side to their coin emerged at the dawn of the 21st Century with a turn towards obscure computer usage pushing all ressemblance of melody and conventual texture to the outer edges. 'The Crackle of my soul' is the first lenght to come from this new direction, starting in 2001 and now finally ready for release. Its also the first Cindytalk album since the 1995 release of 'Wappinschaw'. Although very abstract in nature these 10 tracks still echo the vocal brilliance and subtle beauty that they become known for, as well as pushing back the boundaries. 'Up here in the clouds' is the second installment in tne new Cindytalk sound wich started last years 'The Cracke of my soul'. WhereasCrackle was more of a blistering burner, Clouds has a fresher cooler sound to it, with longer tracks that slowly evolve in great patches of aural beauty. The sound that Gordon Sharp and so create now is a unique blend of cracked electronics, near awkward ambient textures that always seem to flow smoothly like the most natural of sounds around, building up a great set of modern electronic music which closes with the child like melody of the title track. The 7' coupling of Transgender Warrior and Guts Of London is analogue to their debut appearance as a 7' released by Klanggalerie in 2003 (gg62)." [label info]
