Clogs "The Sundown Song" (2013)

Biography

Clogs are a mostly instrumental project led by Australia's Padma Newsome and Bryce Dessner, both most familiar for their work in the acclaimed rock band, The National. But don't call Clogs a side project. Their existence predates The National, and Clogs have released three widely acclaimed albums -- a highly melodic debut THOM'S NIGHT OUT (2001), then the experimental polyphonies ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

A lot of classical musicians mix musical genres only to wind up creating superficial crossover music. But on Thom's Night Out, the classically trained Clogs have come up with a far more substantial fusion. The album evokes, among other things, European modernist composition, Godspeed You Black Emperor, tango, the Paul Winter Consort, and Middle Eastern music. The individual members of the quartet display a striking instrumental range on the CD's eight compositions (six by leader and composer Padma Newsome). Bassoonist Rachael Elliott can riff hard or make gentle melodic statements; percussionist Thomas Kozumplik is able to coax sweet tones out of steel drums or push the music like a rock drummer. Guitarist Bryce Dessner lays down pretty, hypnotic patterns, and he also plays flowing lines that may be improvised. Newsome produces eerie and lyrical tones on viola (and violin) with equal aplomb. Thom's Night Out is all-inclusive chamber music for here and now. --Fred Cisterna

5.0 out of 5 stars Signs of Life November 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Eulogies for contemporary music have been frequent and misplaced, since the present day composer refuses to stay buried. Corporate lipsynchers and celebrity spokesmodels may have taken over popular music, but there is still considerable vitality and innovation at the ragged fringes of a damaged music industry.

Clogs, case in point.

Taking equal inspiration from Erik Satie, Astor Piazolla, Penguin Cafe Orchestra and Joao Gilberto, this quartet rides the boundary between popular music and contemporary classical. Utilizing an unusual (to say the least) combination of bassoon, congas, steel drums, drumkit, guitar, violin & viola, Clogs sounds like no other. Hailing from Connecticut and New York, they draw in influences from as far away as India, South America, Eastern Europe and somewhere over the rainbow. All four members are classically trained, but the music is anything but dry. Humour, lyricism, challenging modernisms and a palpable sense of fun infuse their music.

The New Yorker has written, "Fans of Sigur Ros, Rachel's, and other post-rock ensembles who know how to listen in respectful silence to a live performance will have no trouble appreciating the softly evocative compositions."

This is a stunning debut.
