A SENSE OF FALLING: STRANGE GEOMETRY OUTTAKES - EP - AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDE
on 21 April 2016
To coincide with The Clientele's Strange Geometry album being reissued on vinyl by Merge in USA, The Clientele release 6 previously unavailable tracks from the Strange Geometry album sessions compiled as a digital EP. Singer songwriter Alasdair MacLean wrote of the bonus material:
All six of these tracks are outtakes from the July 2005 Strange Geometry sessions at Bark Studios in London. Breathe In Now is one of my favourite Clientele songs. I wanted it to have a baroque string arrangement but there was no time to put one together, so it was dropped. Spanish Night was written in Valencia. It was too hot to sleep at night, so I ended up staying up at night and sleeping all day, when, as it turned out, it was too hot to sleep. Since We Last Spoke was abandoned halfway through for reasons now unclear, though I still like the lyrical image of Nero appearing in a crowd. Apparently, Emperor Nero mixed among crowds in disguise, listening to other people s conversations. One
Hundred Leaves was a fan favourite and used to be a staple of our live shows, but we couldnt quite get the live feel down on tape at Bark. When I Came Through is a fragment, forgotten until now, a dream of walking home from the railway station to the garden.
