    Fragile yet utterly destructive, this wolf in sheep’s clothing will hurl you five ways and leave you hovering over a bleak abyss. In a great way, obviously.

    Clark is anomalous but deeply rewarding. It's the type of release you could easily live inside for weeks and still find interesting nooks every single day.

    This really does come very close to the top of the pile. An essential opus from a truly essential artist.

It offers more variety than Aphex Twin's Syro, while being more daring than Arca's Xen. Each track has its own cosmic energy, with the album's strengths being most apparent in both the first three tracks and the last three tracks. Expand
