Mark Pritchard has been releasing music under different guises for nearly 3 decades (Global Communication, Reload, Africa Hitech, Harmonic 313, Harmonic 33, to name a few) but reverted to his real name for 2016’s critically acclaimed ‘Under the Sun’. He’s returning this spring with ‘The Four Worlds’, an eight track collection, in the same musical vein as Under the Sun, and indeed he’s once again collaborated with visual artist Jonathan Zawada on the artwork and visual. It also features a collection of underground poets and musicians including Colorado’s psychedelic heroine, Space Lady, on S.O.S, and eighties cult radio artist, Gregory Whitehead, on Come Let Us, and Mark has revealed a new video to accompany the latter.
Its a slow moving, almost static piece of ambient electronica, that drones and slowly unfurls into warm chords, but always with this slight sense of foreboding. Over the top Gregory Whitehead implores us to build a city, his poetry interspersed with sampled vocal noises and something akin to train horns. It’s clever, interesting and enthralling.
