A distinct yet ever-shifting blend of electronic pulse and psychedelic attitude, snake-charming melodica and post-punk guitar, Liverpool's Clinic remain arresting in both slinky atmosphere and minimalist songcraft six albums in. Their latest, Bubblegum, is characteristically efficient, tight of lip, and striking, like a love object who slips in and out of eyesight once, mumbling something odd, but never leaving the mind. With the Fresh & Onlys and the Bombay Sweets. 18+.
