NO NOW is Clarence Clarity’s debut album, released on March 2, 2015. The album showcases Clarence’s maximalist, abrasive, and often overwhelming approach to electronic pop and R&B, along with his cryptic allusions to sexuality, religion, drugs, and disease. Clarity described the album as a constant reminder of the infinite flexibility of an absurd universe.
No now contains samples of the following track on the album Cancer™ in the Water. Written By Clarence Clarity. Release Date March 2, 2015. Cancer™ in the Water by Clarence Clarity.
No Now (Instrumentals) (CDr, Album). No Now (2xLP, Album, Gol + CD, Lim).
No Now is Clarity’s debut album, but we’ve seen shades of his messianic act before. Prince is one touchstone, both for his larger-than-life persona and his willingness - groundbreaking at the time - to mash together elements of dance, funk, rock, and pop. Ariel Pink comes to mind as a more recent inspiration, as Clarity seems to cop a large chunk of his modus operandi from Pink’s love of pop experimentation and eagerness to put his personality at the center of everything. No Now is a 20-song rollercoaster of an album, and the listener will feel every minute of its length.
Artist: Clarence Clarity. Album: No Now. Genre: Electronic, Rhythm and blues.
You won't hear much this year like Clarence Clarity's debut LP No Now. A 20-track album that could probably be best described as R&B (at least in the sort of synth-pop infused, over-dramatic Autre ne Veut sense), the album contains titles like "Bloodbarf" and "1-800-WORSHIP" - and those are the songs that sound the most like singles - as well as a handful of Boredoms-like tape experiments spliced throughout.
Clarence Clarity – No Now. (Bella Union) UK release date: 2 March 2015. by Amelia Maher first published: 4 Mar 2015 in Albums. Clarence Clarity is an ambitious young man, as his debut album No Now underlines. With no less than 20 tracks to wrap ears around, it is a rather overwhelming piece of work before you have even heard any of it, and just a gaze through the track names – Alive In The Septic Tank and Tathāgatagarbha for example – may give rise to an eyebrow.
