Special 2LP + 7" vinyl set compiling both The Crackle Of My Soul (2009) & Up Here In The Clouds (2010) albums, plus limited edition 7" tracks (2003). 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 conventional texture to the outer edges. The Crackle Of My Soul is the 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 they have become known for. Up Here In The Clouds is the second installment in the new Cindytalk sound which started with The Crackle Of My Soul. Whereas Crackle was more of a blistering burner, Clouds has a fresher, cooler sound to it, with longer tracks that slowly evolve in great patches of aural beauty. The sound that Gordon Sharp and company create now is a unique blend of cracked electronics -- near-awkward ambient textures that always seem to flow smoothly like the most natural of sounds around, building up a great set of modern electronic music which closes with the child-like melody of the title track. The coupling of Transgender Warrior and Guts Of London was originally released as a limited edition 7" by Klanggalerie in 2003. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin, August 2010.
