Crafting mystery around himself, Spencer Clark is a musician who draws inspiration from his travels and dreams to create an original sound. Starting out as one half of the noisey punk rock duo The Skaters alongside fellow electronic producer James Ferraro, Clark now releases music under his own name and monikers as such as Monopoly Child and Typhonian Highlife, the latter of which has given us his most recent album, The World of Shells. The third instalment in a series of records on the KRAAK label, The World of Shells is a wacky tapestry of sounds that draws from Clark’s travels through Hollywood, Hanging Rock, Australia, and The Ear of Dionysus in Sicily: the occult, ’80s pop sonics, field recordings, DMT-soaked exotica, guttural animal sounds, bubbling tides, sci-fi aquatics; as entertaining as it is bizarre.
