Boomkat Product Review:
Further to their 'Constellations' album, Austin, Texas-based quintet Balmorhea give the contrasting sides of 'Candor/Clamor' for Western Vinyl. 'Candor' quietly makes its presence felt with gentle, polyrhythmic marimbas and haunting tones seeping up from the lower registers before lissom electric guitar and operatic vocals take centre stage, wowing all in earshot. 'Clamor' is bolder, an almost-ecstatic swirl of piano, glorious bowed strings and pounding drums in a direct and tense arrangement. Includes remixes by Prefuse 73, Botany and Benoit Pioulard.
