Boomkat Product Review:
A rhythmelodic whirligig of fourth world provenance, Spencer Clarke’s Monopoly Star Child Searchers tour-only CDr album MakeMine, Macaw now comes on a new pressing and digital release via Discrepant, where it sweetly falls in place with their peerlessly wide angled catalogue.
Part of an avian trilogy also including Bamboo For Two  and The Garnet Toucan , this is some of The Skaters member’s most hypnotic gear; five tracks, 39 minutes of curdling harmonies and drum loops which may induce listeners to dance, praise nature, and book a holiday to somewhere warmer
“A deep dive into this record makes it clear why it should be re-released. Spencer’s chaotic and mysterious approach to releases, made some really hard to find or listen to due to the nature of them and how they were made available. Despite his career not being very long and that the internet has made it easier to trace most of his back catalogue, in order to understand Spencer's work some archaeology needs to be done. To better understand his own “Fourth World”, or his alien language music, and to expand its vivid musical colours, records like Make Mine, Macaw need to have the special treatment and attention they deserve.
Let’s just say that in the field of experimental-tropical-cocktail music, no one does it like Spencer Clark, especially through his output Monopoly Child Star Searchers. Make Mine, Macaw explores the best cocktail recipes through five colourful pieces, using Clark's premium technique of blurry repetition and dreamy percussions. It's “Fourth World” is one fulfilled with many dimensions that needs the attention you give to a Rubik's Cube when you play with it for the first time. After that it gets better and better. A tropical fantasy that starts in your ears, feeds your brain and changes your life. You won’t know what a pacific city sound vision is until you see one. Make Mine, Macaw makes you see one clearly.”
