Bleep is a column focusing on varying degrees of electronic music news, videos and MP3s. This week we feature a new announcement from Com Truise as well as tracks by Neud Photo and Clark. Read previous Bleep columns here.

 

Com Truise

If everything Com Truise does sounds like it’s ripped from a cheesy ’80’s movie, does that mean his newest collection of early recordings and b-sides should sound like ’70s psych rock? Regardless, the analog feind is back at it again in 2012, only this time he’s peddling some of his older material for a collection titled In Decay. And although I haven’t always agreed with his more recent foray into dub and live performance pandering, the first glimpse of this new -old- material is surprisingly spectacular. “Open” doesn’t reinvent any genre, but it certainly shows that the New Jersey artist and designer has an ear for what he enjoys. It’s undeniably retro and dripping with ’80s nostalgia, but it’s energetic and completely now, what with its schizophrenia beats and booming bass. In Decay will be released July 17th on Ghostly. – EB

Neud Photo

Neud Photo is something of a mystery to me, but this track I was passed along is rather intriguing. SImilar to the formerly mentioned Com Truise, Neud Photo seem obsessed with decades old nostalgia and analog preservation. “Chanticleer Tears” is tense and fills my imagination with scenes of desperation and degradation each time I listen, a characteristic I certainly don’t take lightly. And although it’s been floating out there for a while, this one is definitely worth checking out. – EB

 

Clark

After the release of his latest Warp Records album, Iradelphic, electronic producer Chris Clark, aka Clark, has decided to release a series of free downloads from the same recording session. The first of these is “MFB Skank”, of which he says: “(It) was recorded alongside Iradelphic in an onset of modular dementia. It wouldn’t have worked on Iradelphic so it’s been slinking its way into my live show instead. I was going to put a ragga acapella over it but thought it would ruin the texture. Props to anyone that manages to pull it off over this instrumental version though! The more aggro the better I reckon.”

The track is admittedly pretty aggro indeed, like an uncomfortable and persistent metal-clawed tickle. It is balanced out below with the much gentler and almost whimsical “Com Touch” (how lovely that it is in the same post as Com Truise!). – VH
