Ralph Cumbers introduces his third release of the year.

The producer known for his cross-genre club experiments as Bass Clef has expanded his already bustling 2014 schedule with the announcement of an LP for Mordant Music.

The cheerily titled Some Friends I Lost To Bedlam, Others I Abandoned will appear under Cumbers’ Some Truths alias, a name he’s previously reserved for modular synth-focused cassette releases.

According to the label, it sounds like “asylum limbo, psychotic sock draw [sic] and raving halfway-house”, while the track titles – ‘Music For Trepanning’, ‘Acid and Prozac’ – also suggest that mental health is a prevailing theme across the album.

The LP follows two recent EPs under his Bass Clef moniker – one for Bill Kouligas’ experimental haven PAN and another for London imprint Public Information – and a vinyl reissue of his Acid Tracts cassette.

Some Friends I Lost To Bedlam, Others I Abandoned There is out on April 7. [via RA]
