Stereoklang had a quick chat with the band Memmaker when they performed live at this year’s ElectriXmas in Malmoe Sweden
Memmaker is a Canadian noise/IDM band currently based in Copenhagen, DK
While I’m at it making lists of noteworthy album from 2008 here’s a list of electronica/IDM/glitch albums:
Alva Noto – Unitxt. Less noisy landscapes, more beats! Carsten is back to the Trans series and moving on.
Lexaunculpt – The Blurring Of Trees. Finaly on mp3 release.
Nautilis – Sketches
Byetone – Death Of A Typographer
Benge – I am 9
Signal – Robotron (ok, released 2007). Need I say I love the Raster Noton label.
Autechre – Quaristice. Hard to avoid the superstars of electronica.
Venetian Snares – Detrimentalist. Maybe not innovative as so many other releases by AaronFunk but it has got a special place on my mp3 player.
Bitstream – Steeljacket. why can’t the Connor brother release more!!!
Xanopticon – Liminal Space. Finaly on mp3 release
Clark has released a new album on Warp Records entitled Turning Dragon. I have looked forward to this album for some time after listened to his previous release, Throttle Promoter EP. Clark is definately one of the most refreshing artists on Warp, he has a very innovative but still classic UK electronic sound. Hard, deep, continuously evolving and gritty tracks, aimed at contorting your body on the dance floor or just contorting your brain. This is an album that you could almost call techno, but techno with the a.d.d. detail pushed as far as it can go.
