Cindytalk - The Poetry Of Decay 2LP+7\" 20735
Special Double-LP compiling both Editions Mego albums perviously released on CD ('The Crackle of my Soul' and 'Up Here In The Clouds'). plus 7" reissue of the Cindytalk 7" on Klanggalerie. Cindytalk have been active since 1982. During the 80s and 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 resemblance of melody and conventual texture to the outer edges. "The Crackle Of My Soul" is the first full length 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 the new Cindytalk sound which started last years The Crackle Of My Soul. Whereas Crackle 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 co 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.
