Clark has remastered his 2006 album Body Riddle and paired it with a compilation of new music, unreleased tracks, and rarities. The remaster is streaming and available for purchase now, and comes to vinyl and CD on September 30, via Warp. The 12 bonus tracks—including the Broadcast collaboration “Herr Bar Improv”—are also set to arrive September 30, and you can check out the rarity “Dead Shark Eyes” below.
The producer, whom Mitski recently commissioned for a rare remix, recorded Body Riddle in the UK city of Birmingham, where he befriended Warp labelmates Broadcast. “They lived about ten minutes from me,” Clark recalled in a press release. “I borrowed James Cargill’s drum kit and some mics of his, and all of the drums on that album are his old drum kit. There were some jams that me and James had, there’s one at the end of ‘Roulette Thrift Run’ which is basically just him on guitar and me plundering away on some drums, and I just pitched it up. Broadcast weren’t really in my circle of friends at the time but going to their place was sort of like a holiday from my normal social life, and I just loved it. Both Trish and James were both so full of wisdom, but I wasn’t really in with their scene of people at all, I’d just go there on my own and listen to records and have cups of tea.”
The rarities, compiled as 05-10, include the Throttle Furniture EP and a handful of ambient pieces. Clark’s latest album, released last year, was Playground in a Lake.
