The Clientele — Music For The Age Of Miracles (Sept. 22, 2017)

The Clientele — Music For The Age Of Miracles (September 22, 2017) The Clientele — Music For The Age Of Miracles (Sept. 22, 2017) The Clientele — Music For The Age Of Miracles (September 22, 2017)≈≠↓    The Clientele formed a long time ago in the backwoods of suburban Hampshire, playing together as kids at school, rehearsing in a thatched cottage remote from any kind of music scene, but hypnotized by the magical strangeness of Galaxie 500 and Felt and the psych pop of Love and the Zombies.    
≈≠↓    One of my all~time fav British bands is back after a long 7 or 8 years with a fresh release. I once took a trip driving down the california coastline to big sur, all the while playing The Clientele. From that point on they have been cemented as a go to band to help soothe my overly anxious soul. So pour yourself a beverage and Clientele & Chill this weekend.

≈≠↓    The Clientele, have released a new video for “Everyone You Meet”. The track is off their album Music for the Age of Miracles, out September 22 in North America via Merge. The clip, finds the London trio crisscrossing through their hometown streets and parks on filter~free, real~deal film.
Director Paul Kelly on the film format of choice:
≈≠↓    I still have the original Super 8 cameras that I used when I first began shooting music promos in the 1980s, although I had no idea if they still worked and, as we didn’t have the time or budget to get them serviced, just took a chance and hoped for the best.
≈≠↓    Apart from its aesthetic charm, the original reason I began shooting on Super 8 was its (then) low cost, but with digital filming now effectively free, Super 8 seems quite an exotic choice. It is not cheap, and the sound of the camera motor is a constant reminder of the cash running through the shutter. There are various filters and effects that can mimic a filmic look, but there is no substitute for the real thing.
≈≠↓    Having shot all ten film cartridges, there was a slightly anxious two~week wait to see if anything had actually come out, and with the deadline looming, I began to form a digital back~up plan just in case! I still get a sense of amazement whenever I see film rushes; it seems miraculous that the process actually works at all.
The Clientele’s Alasdair MacLean:
≈≠↓    We knew Paul had filmed the Lea Valley in [Saint Etienne’s short film] What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day? and that he was interested in forgotten parts of London. We asked him to make the North Circular ring road and the buildings and streets around our way — New Southgate, N11 — look beautiful. Which, amazingly, he did. He captured the North Circular vernacular and hung out with us in some of our favourite places, beginning with a couple of epic walks along the A406 ring road in the pouring rain.
≈≠↓    The Clientele return to North America for their first shows since 2014.
≈≠↓    Singer Alasdair MacLean still recalls a pub conversation where the band collectively voted that it was OK to be influenced by Surrealist poetry but not OK to have any shouting or blues guitar solos. From that moment on, they put their stamp on a kind of eerie, distanced pure pop, stripped to its essentials and recorded quickly to 4~track analogue tape.
≈≠↓    Instantly identifiable, The Clientele sound like no one else, although they are cited as an influence by bands as diverse as Spoon and the Fleet Foxes. It’s been said that the greatest bands always create their own individual sound; The Clientele have gone one further and created their own world. — Orson Absence
≈≠↓    A warm welcome back to The Clientele, who have announced the September 22 release of Music for the Age of Miracles, their first new album in seven years! Check out the lyric video for “Lunar Days” below, which paints a picture of London’s Russell Square at twilight and “things on the edge of sight” according to frontman Alasdair MacLean. In other words: quintessential Clientele.
