the clientele - "st. paul's beneath a sinking sky" (from the it's art, dad lp, available for purchase at shows or at the clientele's website.)

for those who missed the lo-fi sound of early clientele records, they've released a collection of demos from 1991-1996, any number of which could have been album, or even single, tracks. be happy, then, about the unfinished sound, but rue the fact--something that those w/ a temperament for the band naturally possess--that something as incredible as "st. paul's" seems so incomplete. it's almost like dylan cracking up at the end of "she's your lover now." almost. "st. paul's" is every bit as evocative as its title.
