  • Clark's next album, Kiri Variation, comes out towards the end of July on his label, Throttle Records. It's his first self-released album, following nine LPs for Warp Records spanning 2001 to 2017. It includes his "most song-based composition ever," the press release says, and has him singing on record for the first time. He worked with a lot of processed recordings of acoustic instruments here: piano, harpsichord, clarinet and strings among them. "Certain parts are also what you could call anti muso," he says. "For example the recorder on 'Kiri's Glee' is totally out of tune—but it sounds so colourful. I can't resist the primary paint of acoustic instruments; it's an antidote to frictionless digital music." Listen to "Cannibal Homecoming."
