When the hype surrounding Merz's 1999 debut album failed to translate into sales, the man born Conrad Lambert went into self-imposed exile. He returned in 2005 with the subdued Loveheart, before following that up with the folky Moi et Mon Camion three years later. While that album was influenced by walks in the English countryside, its much bolder follow-up, No Compass Will Find Home, was partly recorded in a laboratory once used by Albert Einstein. This coupled with the fact Lambert was reading books by Malcolm Gladwell at the time has lead to a collection of songs influenced by "scientific and cultural progress". To give the music a more modernist feel to match the lyrics, Lambert worked closely with electronic producer Matthew Herbert, a man who once made an album documenting the life and death of a pig (and has produced Björk, the Invisible, and Micachu). His work on the album's first single, Goodbye My Chimera, is less experimental than we've come to expect from him, but there's enough going on around the edges of the song to keep things exciting. For the video – premiered here – rapidly edited images of Merz performing the song are intercut or laid over beautifully distorted shots of acrobats.
