Clinic - Bubblegum 2LPDomino Recording Co.
Bubblegum', the mind-blowing sixth album from Clinic, is exactly 40 minutes long. Usually, long-players by this most extraordinary British band clock in at a clipped half-hour. That makes an extra 33% of murky psychedelic/punk excellence. But there's a little more to it than that. This one comes from another planet, baby. "Bubblegum" is a different bag of butternut squash. On one listen, it feels instantly warmer, lusher, less uptight. It glows like dusk in a balmy Indian Summer.
