about

The idea behind this split was to reunite friends. While in the studio working on his first solo album, Matthew Hale Clark recorded additional tracks for that matter. The first collaboration with three:four records through the :take: & white/lichens split was a success, so it’s only natural that this new record takes part in our split series... to our greatest delight.

Matthew Hale Clark and Ken Camden are especially known for their commitment in white/light and Implodes. Here, Matthew Hale Clark gave up stratospheric drones and opted for an acoustic piece. Directly inspired by primitive American folk, SLC Suite is an acoustic guitar track with finger-picking that develops towards more contemporary and cosmic atmospheres, with the pedal-steel and Jeremy Lemos’ contribution on shruti-box and, Frank Rosaly on drums. This was beautifully recorded at Soma studios.

On the other side, Ken Camden’s tracks have nothing in common with the A side. But he too strays from his usual music making for Implodes by offering two pieces based on guitar and effects. Moisture and Algoma Summer lean towards synthetic-type and psychedelic drones, and their twilight beauty is breathtaking.
Although very different in style, both sides are surprisingly and gracefully complementary.
