The Renaissance - Cannibus Crank Machine
The lost track from The original Renaissance LP Animus feels like the quintessential example of the band's memory process. It displays a heavy influence from ambient electro-wizards Boards of Canada filtered through the anything-goes sonic-bedroom mentality of Joan Of Arc. Listening to the Epic 80 min Animus evokes a experience that feels oddly familiar and fluid like a dream had long ago. It beckons the question: How could something so vivid be relegated to be forever buried in the sub-conscious yet so ingrained in ones being that it permeates every waking thought? Animus is the genesis of Radiator South and where it will most likely come to rest.
