i've only just got this, so the songs aren't too firmly nestled in my head yet. but after the first couple of listenings i've given it, i really like it.
aix em klemm (pronounced ex m clem - apparantly) is made up of two guys - bobby donne from labradford and adam wiltzie from stars of the lid. i'm a huge labradford fan, but i have absolutely no idea about stars of the lid - they're probably great though, being on the mighty kranky records!!
if you're a fan of the kranky label (especially labradford, pan american and i would guess stars of the lid) then you shouldn't hesitate to get this.
"sophteonal" is very much like labradford - strong slow bass, quiet strummed guitar, electronic atmospherics and no beats.
"prue lewarne" sounds quite a lot like soulwhirlingsomewhere (from projekt records) - similar voice, deep electronic bass, light textured guitar, more electronic ambience floating along in the background, and still no beats - [the] placing of this in dance & dj is a bit misleading! think ambient/post-rock
the rest of the tracks all fall somewhere between those sounds - mostly ambient electronics backed up with some bass (guitar and electronic), understated guitar and occasional vocals.
as i said, don't hesitate if you're a labradford or pan american fan, and this extends to fans of soulwhirlingsomewhere and to a lesser extent, early black tape for a blue girl.
don't know what else to say really other than it's a really great album, but probably not for mainstream tastes. if you're open to new things and prefer your music to be at least a bit challenging, then take a chance on aix em klemm.
oh and don't be put of by there only being 6 tracks, it's about 43 min long.
enjoy.

I was drawn to this CD as a confirmed Stars of the Lid - eg Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid - and Labradford fan - eg Mi Media Naranja. It starts very much in the STOL ambient-drone style - "The girl with the flesh coloured crayon" - but the quietly spoken Wiltzie lyrics (ironically?) add a Labradford (or Pan American, another brilliant Mark Nelson project), feel to the mid section of the track. "3x2(exit)" follows - STOL drones with a 'glitch' punctuation. "Sophotoneal" is next, and is the most Labradford-like track (along with the last) - acoustic guitar, punctuated with a minimalist industrial-edged-time-signal-like drone. Enter "Prue lewarne", another STOL drone-style offering. Perhaps the outstanding track is 'The luxury of dirt', which has an 'unrequited-yearning' feel like the best of STOL/Labradford/Pan Amercan and their ilk, with a background glitchy 'beat'. "Sparkwood and tewntyone" ends album in fine chilled Labradford style. While I would not rate this as highly as the best of STOL ("Tired sounds of..."; And Their Refinement of the Decline; The Ballasted Orchestra), it is another engaging Kranky release and a fine addition to any ambient/drone/electronica collection.

With Stars of the Lid's Adam Wiltzie and Labradford's Bobby Donne doing this piece, you'd expect a highly incredible collaboration album, well... it's got its good and its got its bad spots. Aix Em Klemm's album starts out the way you'd imagine it with it's triumpant and classic SOTL beginning drone of "The Girl with the Flesh Colored Crayon," which moves into a series of sounds and noises. Wiltize does some singing on the record which really reminds me of Mark Nelson's vocals... the cd almost sounds completely like a Labradford album but with those Stars of the Lid special effects. Its a good record, "Prue Lawarne" and "The Girl with the Flesh Colored Crayon," are my faves but, if you like slower, noisier amibience with light guitars go for it. It is WORTH the buy.

I know what you're thinking. SOTL and Labradford collaboration. Domination. The truth is - these songs are not bad by any means. They just cannot live up to the hype. Pretty flowing sounds and guitar parts shimmering throughout mediocre songs that evoke less emotion than the aforementioned bands generally exude. If you are a huge fan than go ahead and add it to your collection. If not, save your money and pick up something a little more cohesive...

Despite the impeccable parentage -- Stars of The Lid have made some of the best ambient music of the past decade, and Labradford's sense of sound and space is masterful -- this collaboration between two of their members was disappointing to me. With the exception of "The Girl With The Flesh Colored Crayon", which is like Labradford at their best, the music here seems unfinished and meandering. Now, I'll admit that "meandering" and even "like paint drying" are adjectives that can fairly be applied to either Labradford or SOTL, but they somehow manage to make an absolute virtue of it -- in SOTL's case it's like some kind of fractal paint that you sit watching for hours as it subtly changes color and texture. But on this CD it's just ... meandering.
