All The Pretty Things

All The Pretty Things album cover

So back in the day I understood All The Pretty Things to be both album and artist name. It was an alias of Clinton Francis, who also made music as both Isolation and Isol. This one album from 2001 is now available up on Bandcamp.

The album is packed with drifting tones and deep, bass-heavy distortions that have reminded me much more recently of, say, Ben Frost’s work. The Bandcamp page makes comparisons to “the ambience of Thomas Heckmann and Jocham Papp, along with the modal stirrings of Seefeel and shoegaze bands such as Slowdive.”
