Wizards Tell Lies - 'Arthur C Clarke's Bad Weekend' from Wizards Tell Lies (2011)
Wizards Tell Lies are one of the several guises of Matt Bower of Wigan, UK, who channels feedback, keys, ghostological ambience, postpunk rhythms and a serious fix of British Occult/Sci-Fi Paranoia which extends from Arthur Machen to Clive Barker and beyond, with some extensive "What Would The X-Files Be Like If Made For The BBC In The Early 1970's?" vibes. This stuff really should be listened to in its entirety as album-stuffs, not only due to overall feelings/atmosphere, but also narrative cohesion, as WTL albums frequently offer a story-mythos-programme to go along with the musicks.
