It always felt like autumn in the Clientele’s world. On their drowsily amber-hued albums, the leaves were forever changing colors, there was a nip in the air, and sweaters and scarves were drawn close. But after a winter of inactivity, spring has come ’round again—it always does—and the Clientele are back. Main songwriter Alasdair Maclean has regrouped with bassist James Hornsey and drummer Mark Keen for Music for the Age of Miracles, and their simultaneously wise and virginal sound is just as lovely as ever. Maclean’s lyrics remain influenced by surrealism and classic mythology, with a recurring theme of Orpheus threaded through the songs. And yet an English pastoral quality pervades, as it did on the Clientele’s previous recordings—Maclean’s voice is rarely raised above a breath, and the songs’ lushness is tempered by the band’s tasteful restraint.
