In order to floss the faeces out of my teeth from that last James Blake tune, I tuned my attention back several years to a seminal (in my mind) Chris Clark joint. Taken from 2009’s Warp Records released Totem’s Flare album, ‘Suns of Temper’ shows – as with all Clark tracks – that too much compression can never be enough and that surprise drops should never go out of style.
Emotive, atmospheric and well produced, I highly recommend this tune, the album that spawned it and the two that preceded it.
Proper, late night headphone music.
