Artist: CLARINETTE
Title: Little Fluttery Screamy Thing
Format: Lathe Cut 7" & CDR
Label: Clarinette
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"With 2001s "Haze" on Ecstatic Yod and the forthcoming "Transmuting Fall" on Celebrate Psi Phenomenon, Clarinette has confounded a few, delighted some others and remained completely unheard of by just about everyone else. Drenching everything in blankets of echo (natural and synthetic) Clarinette has effectively evaded creating anything reasonably identifiable as proper music. Dusted Charlie Wilmoth called Clarinettes Haze a bizarre gem of a record describing it as like nothing a human being would try to make on purpose. Haze went on to take an impressive 916th place in The Village Voices Pazz n Jop Poll for 2002. 2004s Little Fluttery Screamy Thing EP and its accompanying album length CD-R explore what happens when too many equipment failures crash into an unhealthy obsession with the recent DNA CD anthology. It is nearly all guitar and echo and just barely appropriate for release. Lathe cut by Peter King in New Zealand and limited to 51 copies." - Clarinette.

Title: Haze
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Yod
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Regardez-vous the debut recording by Clarinette, a solo project that has flowed from the brain of well-known archivist, Daniel "Dan" Vallor. Utilizing such instruments as guitar, swinehorn and kuck, Mr. Vallor has created a world of scrambled-diz miniatures of disarming variety. Played w/ tiny robot fingers, lacerated by stumps of home-studio fuckery, the five pieces here are as potently frenched a selection of man-handled string readymades as any record collector has ever waxed."

Title: The Now of Then
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"In the 15 years since Thurston and I released the first Clarinette LP, Haze (E#60, 2002), Dan Vallor has continued to produce music unabated. Most of it has been released in very limited editions (on CDRs, cassettes, and lathes), but it has been a consistently cool flow of drone accrual and invention from a guy we still sorta think of as pop-oriented. Dans best known work probably remains his archival activities inside the archives of the late songwriting genius, Scott Miller, although others may know him from his efforts to catalog the output of the NZ lathe underground. Clarinette is a long running solo project that began in the 80s, that went dormant until early in the 21st Century. The music is largely based on electric guitar huzz and hum, but there are plenty of sound events that pop up throughout the record, disturbing and enriching the surface with sproings, rasps, and groons. The pieces on The Now of Then are all fairly reflective, and probably more suitable to stoned drifting than freak dancing, but hey -- it never pays to second guess audience reaction. If you feel the urge to freak, so be it. Clarinettes music definitely twangs the freak register. Who are we to say you should remain seated?" - Byron Coley, 2017.
