Clinic

Free Reign II (Domino)

Little known fact that Clinic can get groovy. More alternate take than traditional remix, ambient collagist Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never) retooled the Liverpudlians seventh LP for what was supposed to be the original release. While the changes aren't always drastic (see highlight "Miss You II"), feel free to be surprised by the warbled, throwback psychedelic burner "Cosmic Radiation II," or how the gentle, narcotized ruptures of "Misty II" drifts you off the edge. The result's an oddly illuminating listen, perhaps their most austere, pushing Clinic's more off-the-wall elements to the fore – as if the band's fun-house psych mirror got turned on itself. (Sun., 12mid, Levitation tent)
