Clogs: The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton

Read "The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton" reviewed by John Kelman

With the digital-only EP, Veil Waltz (Brassland, 2010), neoclassicist quartet Clogs announced that it was back in action after a lengthy hiatus. But that brief collection, largely written for film, was really only a taste-whetter for The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton, Clogs' first full-length CD since Lantern (Brassland, 2006). Like Veil Waltz, Lantern ...

Clogs: Veil Waltz

Read "Veil Waltz" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been four years since last hearing from Clogs, the quirky neoclassical quartet founded by Padma Newsome. This is the longest gap in the group's decade-long history, largely predicated when the Australian violinist/violist decides to come in from the Outback to reconvene with guitarist Bryce Dessner, bassoonist Rachael Elliott and percussionist Thomas Kozumplik, Americans all.

Now you've got something that, well, really sounds nothing like Clogs, the remarkable new-music quartet made up of Padma Newsome ...

Clogs: Lantern

Read "Lantern" reviewed by John Kelman

With each successive release, Clogs move further away from the neoclassicism of Thom's Night Out (Brassland, 2001) towards a unique blend of contemporary chamber music, indigenous folk music, trance-like minimalism and idiosyncratic song structure. But Lantern represents a number of firsts for the group.

Previous albums including Lullaby for Sue (Brassland, 2003) and Stick Music ...

Clogs: Stick Music

Read "Stick Music" reviewed by Celeste Sunderland

Sound is spiritual. The sound of a single, unaltered string quivering against the force of a finger can be religious. With its third album, Stick Music, the Australian-American group Clogs devotes itself to the exploration of strings. With band members Bryce Dessner on guitar and prepared guitar and Padma Newsome on violin, viola, vocals and prepared ...

Clogs: Stick Music

Read "Stick Music" reviewed by John Kelman

With bassoonist Rachael Elliott and percussionist Thomas Kozumplik on temporary hiatus, Clogs pares down to a duo, leaving guitarist Bryce Dessner and violinist/violist Padma Newsome as the driving force behind its new release, Stick Music. While violinist Jennifer Choi, cellist Erik Friedlander and percussionist Tim Feeney add worthwhile guest appearances, Stick Music is really about the ...
