|MH-238 Clue To Kalo - One Way, It's Every Way
Written and recorded in Adelaide, Australia during a two-year period of great personal change, and finished on a four-month adventure in Brooklyn, USA, One Way, It's Every Way is Mark Mitchell's second record as Clue To Kalo. Designed as a musical palindrome, the album is an unabashedly ambitious, surprisingly celebratory meditation on death. Instrumental contributions from old and new friends, as well as elements of classic folk, lo-fi rock, and bedroom electronica, are all taken out of context and remade as a ten track set thick with overloaded melodies, multi-part harmonies, and literate language. One Way, It's Every Way is a stunning development for Clue To Kalo both musically and lyrically.
|A serious contender for 2005's best record - Scissorkick / Extraordinarily unassuming, gorgeous release - Stylus / A master of counterintuitive pop arrangements - Chord / Will pull at your heartstrings and carry you back to nostalgic places in the best of ways - Metro.Pop
|Twisted, shifted and gently uplifted, Clue's newest multi-layered metropolis build mesmerizing mountains of sound. Softly spoken swirls of obliging overtones hide in tides of poly-rhythmic sympathies, interspersing intersecting double-jointed counterpoint. The quick clattering tapestries of studio manipulations converge around souped-up acoustics as, "Way," creates glittering ripples of hypnotic alt-pop chakras. - Maximum Ink
