I’m really enjoying the new Clogs LP Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton. Its their first release that focuses on songwriting rather than instrumental compositions.
Clogs has been at the forefront of the Indie Classical crossover movement, bringing together pop sensibilities in sophisticated concert music arrangements. This time out, Padma Newsome’s voice and songs are featured, resulting in a frequent and fetching pastoral folk ambience.
A teaser track from the LP, “On the Edge,” is below. I’ll be interviewing the band for the site later this month.
