Alex Cameron – Divorce
Earlier this year, Miami-based artist, Steven A. Clark released his excellent sophomore LP, Where Neon Goes to Die, via Secretly Canadian. Today, he shares a behind the scenes look at the album’s recording process.
Through the process of recording Where Neon Goes to Die, German producer and DJ Boys Noize and Clark built up a close working and personal relationship. The two bounced the music back and forth over email, until they finally came together at Boys Noize’s Berlin studio for the final sessions. Director Lil Internet documented the recording process between Clark and Boys Noize. The resulting footage culminates as part of today’s just-released mini-doc, which speaks to the process into the making of Where Neon Goes to Die, Clark and Boys Noize’s admiration of each other, Clark’s motivations, influences, and more.
Where Neon Goes to Die is a portrait of Miami built on ten songs: eight songs written by Clark, two written by Clark’s uncle. Miami is where Clark’s lifelong love of music became a full-time gig, and it also happens to be an enormous playground filled with temptations for a budding young artist. Fittingly, Where Neon Goes to Die explores a complex relationship full of highs and lows. From sultry pop to heart aching ballads, the album retells Clark’s travels through the city’s nocturnal fantasyland through hooky, R&B-infused synth pop that (maybe ironically) could fill the floors at the same clubs he’s singing about.
Alex Cameron will release his third album, 'Miami Memory,' on September 13th via Secretly Canadian, and tour Europe and North America immediately following.

The past month has seen remixes of select Steven A. Clark songs from his latest album 'Where Neon Goes To Die' from Helado Negro and Theophilus London. Today Amtrac has remixed “Found” from the album capping off the remix series.
Whitney, the Chicago-based band led by vocalist/drummer Julien Ehrlich and guitarist Max Kakacek, will release their sophomore album, 'Forever Turned Around,' on August 30th. On the follow up to their much-beloved debut, 2016’s 'Light Upon the Lake,' Ehrlich and Kakacek grapple with the anxiety and acceptance that time is limited and navigate questions of mortality, doubt, love, and friendship.
