Spencer Clark puts his The Skaters and Tarzana collabs on hold to revisit his Typhonian Highlife project to squanch some sounds from the 'World of Shells', using synth-drenched ambient tools to conjure up images of beaches, palm trees, sunbathers and donkeys, all made from shells of course. Melodic and experimental synth music if it stayed well away from temperate climates.
This one has sold out on all formats. Sorry!
Don't be sad you missed out on this one. There's always more.

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 12 January 2017
Here is a man called Spencer Clark, of the Skaters and Tarzana (?) semi-fame, revisiting the Typhonian Highlife project in order to paint some seaside images onto your mindspace. Think synth meanderings and shakey sample collages that unfold in a conversational manner, talking about things like sunshine, ocean breeze and desert islands.
The sounds themselves are really interesting actually - the synths wander around with a sort of detuned, quirky quality to them, playing cute little melodies while the sampled elements skitter and scratch like some kind of Darwinian discovery emerging from the undergrowth. It’s on the edge of being nonsense but manages to step carefully into a sort of stream-of-consciousness realm. I kind of question using the whole ‘tropical’ thing as an aesthetic as it strays dangerously close to ‘non-Western’ fetishism, but I think this guy is just a new new age warlock so is probs too tripped out to notice. Good stuff, anyway.
