90 minutes of smooth and arty ambient music from Llarks!
Christopher Llarks (aka c. jeely) was born April 1976 in Birmingham, AL., and spent his teenage years playing guitar and singing in a handful of local bands. It was in these local bands that Chris began exploring his love of melodies and ambient textures, and discovered inspiration from the fiercely independent spirit of early American Hardcore. Initially his sound was crafted and honed using multiple analog delay pedals, amp volume and 4-track cassette recording techniques. Later on, under the guise of Accelera Deck (1996-2006), Chris utilized digital sound processing to create an even more abstract sound. It has been the marriage of these two seemingly unrelated sound worlds that has given birth to Chris’ underlying philosophy to “always seek the merger of opposing ends of the spectrum, like the yin and yang, or the push and pull of noise and melody.” And finally, Chris created Llarks after a time spent writing, and rediscovering his approach to recording and releasing music. This is truly the sound of a man following his heart through sheer perseverance and twenty years of independent artistry.

Review from Rivet Selects
“…Imagine finding a portastudio in Boards Of Canada’s basement, muting all the drums, and throwing it down a mineshaft. That’s what ‘Radio Starslide Forever’ sounds like, and it seems quite wonderful down there…”

“Christopher Llarks (née Jeely) är ingen duvunge, han har gjort musik i tjugo år vid det här laget, från hardcore till band- och ljudexperiment under namnet Accelera Deck till dagens målande och gryniga ambient förklädd till omväxlande drån. Bara det!”
