I'm very much into Clifford's work with Seefeel, but need to admit his solo efforts are not even half as good as former group's material. Seefeel was alienation, darkness and sadness multiplied by incredible density, music with feelings, not neccesarily the pleasant ones, but that's what dark ambient should be, and that's what lacks in Disjecta's "Clean Pit...". Musicwise this album is very simple, repetitive distorted lo-fi sounds and melodies, all stripped of any excitement; seefeelish, skeletal construction is just a barely noticeable trace. The only track that clearly stands out and reason why I didn't rate the whole thing 1 is "Is That Really It" which reminds me somehow of Autechre's "Vletremx21" in its beatless parts. Rest bores to death.

This is a strong effort from former Seefeel front man Mark Clifford. Heavily bass driven and varies from dark beats (i.e. Kracht) to melodic ambience (i.e. Are You An Echo?). To best explain the recipe for the Clean Pit And Lid, you'll need a few ingredients a pinch of Autechre's Chiastic Slide, a hint of Aphex Twin's I Care Because You Do, and a dash of Gescom's Keynell. A solid release for years to come.

brilliant post Seefeel recordings by Mark Clifford. sounds at times like a playful version of 'Succor' (seefeels last recording for warp)
clifford is responsible for the marriage of droney guitars and electronic beats. revivalists take note.
this album is trippy, but not hoppy, blissed, but not out, intelligent, but not dance, music but not muse sick.
