Clinic Do It!

  • Words: Joe Colly
  • Label: Domino
  • XLR8R Rating: 7/10

Though Clinic has released a string of credible records since 2002, the oft-masked Liverpudlian art-rockers famously haven’t won back the acclaim garnered by their stunning debut, Internal Wrangler. But with Do It!–an album that matches the urgency of its cheeky title–they’re a step further to reclaiming that praise. Do It! recalls the approach of fellow experimentalists Liars, who reined in their adventurous tendencies in favor of melody. Do It! also retains all of the band’s signature weirdness and genre exploration but introduces a new pop sensibility, due in part to producer Jacquire King, who puts his stamp on the standout love trip “Emotions” and spooky closer “Coda.”
