Legendary UK experimental group Cindytalk have been active since 1982. During the '80s and '90s their sound was defined by broken-down rock structures and abstract piano ambience. A third side to their coin emerged at the dawn of the 21st century with a turn towards obscure computer usage, pushing all resemblance of melody and conventual texture to the outer edges. The Crackle Of My Soul is their first full-length to come from this new direction, starting in 2001 and now finally ready for release. It's also the first Cindytalk album since the 1995 release of Wappinschaw. Although very abstract in nature, these 10 tracks still echo the vocal brilliance and subtle beauty that Cindytalk have become known for, and push back boundaries, making this an essential listen, regardless if you are aware of their back catalog or not. This is the first in a series of already-finished releases from Cindytalk, which will see the light of day throughout 2010. "And if there is still one hellish, truly accursed thing in our time, it is our artistic dallying with forms, instead of being like victims burnt at the stake, signaling through the flames." --Antonin Artaud. Written and recorded by Gordon Sharp at Belmont Shore (CA), Mid-Levels (HK) & Kobe (Japan) 2001-2009. Mastered at Piethopraxis, July 2009. Dedicated to Matt Kinnison (1965-2008).
