Originally released in 2005, The Clientele recorded their 2nd full-length album Strange Geometry with producer Brian O'Shaughnessy at Bark Studios, Walthamstow (UK). The album features twelve dreamy folk-pop songs with shimmering psych guitars and string arrangements by Louis Phillippe. Strange Geometry was the first Clientele album to be recorded in a fully equipped, professional studio with an established engineer/producer. The results are stunning. Strange Geometry is a robust yet subtle recording. Songs are allowed room to breathe, yet never stray into indulgence. When not concerned with the chore of production - the twisting of knobs and the repair of faulty equipment - the band was free to focus completely on the music, achieving and expanding upon the sonic blueprint they had envisioned from the start. Mr. O'Shaughnessy's experience and expertise helped the band deliver their most accomplished record to date, full of rich textures and enchanting melodies. As well, the contributions of the enigmatic and incredibly talented Mr. Philippe cannot be understated. His string arrangements are delicate but nonetheless powerful additions.
