Boomkat Product Review:
Lily Perdida is Clue To Kalo's third album, arriving some three-and-a-half years on from the much-praised One Way, It's Every Way. Mark Mitchell - the mastermind behind all this - has imagined Lily Perdida as a concept album of sorts, in which each track takes the perspective of a different figure in the life of the eponymous, fictional character. Confusing, huh? To give you examples of how this works, the first track 'Lull For Dear Life' is attributed to Lily's parents (cited as "The Parents"), while 'What Went Down Around' is by "The Eavesdropper". The more you try to decipher this, the more bizarre it all seems, and there's a good chance that the conceptual chicanery will obscure the music itself. Fortunately, hitting the play button soon dismisses any potential befuddlement. Mitchell pairs up with Ellen Carey for vocals, fronting an ear-beguiling assemblage of post-folk instrumentation and 21st century psych-pop. You can hear elements of Akron/Family and Sufjan Stevens creeping into complex arrangements like 'It's Here The Story's Straight', 'The Infinite Orphan', and most pointedly, 'Mine Disaster After Theirs Is Done'. as with those aforementioned acts, when the setup works best its when the melodic elements still manage to cut through the bombastic froth - something Clue To Kalo carry off with aplomb.
