Written and recorded in Adelaide, Australia during a two-year period of great personal change, and finished on a four-month adventure in Brooklyn, USA, One Way, It's Every Way is Mark Mitchell's second record as Clue to Kalo. Designed as a musical palindrome, the album is an unabashedly ambitious, surprisingly celebratory meditation on death. Instrumental contributions from old and new friends, as well as elements of classic folk, lo-fi rock, and bedroom electronica, are all taken out of context and remade as a ten track set thick with overloaded melodies, multi-part harmonies, and literate language. One Way, It's Every Way is a stunning development for Clue to Kalo both musically and lyrically.
