Ralph Cumbers has a new LP due out on Punch Drunk in April.
This April, Ralph Cumbers will release a new album as Bass Clef called Reeling Skullways.
The record will be Cumbers' first full-length on Peverelist's label, Punch Drunk, and will mark somewhat of a departure from his past work as Bass Clef. As the moniker suggests, many of his records so far have had a heavy bass slant to them, but Reeling Skullways is more of a house and techno affair. The album is light on samples and heavy on stripped-down 4/4 beats, which according to a press release were produced by means of modular synthesis. The title is lifted from Barefoot In The Head, a psychedelic sci-fi novel by the author Brian Aldiss.
