clipd beaks To Realize (LP, £9.75)label: Lovepump United
Following on from their two woozy, psychedelic, and often claustrophobic records that touched upon their great potential, Oakland's Clipd Beaks’ ‘To Realize’ is something of a turning point, a record of personal and artistic growth, sonically expansive, lyrically profound, and deeply moving. It recalls the societal hangover depicted in the great California rock records of the early 70’s, whilst sitting firmly in the noisy, chaotic present day. ‘To Realize’ places itself as a beacon of sprawling, humanist hope in an increasingly digital world, and anyone who still believes in the transformative power of rock ‘n’ roll will recognise it in this record.
