Music: Retro Utensil

Posted by Martin Poulter on 27 September 2007

The latest track from the group MelEliAle (previously featured on D’n’C) (also here) is a spacey instrumental called “Retro Utensil”. Like most MelEliAle recordings, this was improvised with minor editing and production afterwards.

(Download link) Personnel: Mel (clarinet?, percussion), Eli (piano), Ale (acoustic guitar), Me (bass/ annoying electronic clinky noise/ production). Update Friday 5th October: A remixed version has been uploaded, with a different intro and ending.
