Haven’t got a clue

At least I hadn’t until someone sent me this link to a couple of MP3s from this Constellation Records band…Constellation, you may know, is the Montreal-based experimental label of choice for Godspeed! offshoots and other magnificently drone-y, multi-parted instrumental overtures, musique concrete and generally non-commercial excesses – in other words, when they’re pitching, pay attention.

Clues is a joint project of Alden Penner (of Unicorns) and Brendan Reed (of Les Angles Mort), with some of the strung out sweetness of Penner’s band, filtered through a haze of rackety distortion and clatter

Here’s “Remember Severed Head”

And “Perfect Fit”
