• lazarus clamp The Bird Is Not the Metaphor (CD, £11.95)

    label: Damnably

    In 2014-15, Lazarus Clamp will celebrate twenty years of bloody-minded music-making, with the release of their 6th LP. The 12 songs were recorded live, and direct to 2" tape, by Lewis Childs, in an oast house in southern England. They make music at the awkward interface between pop (they write songs) and post-rock (the rhythms, dynamics and interplay between instruments are often complex). They employ a relatively spare post-punk aesthetic (‘no props, no frills’). BEARDED: "A blend of Yo La Tengo, The Evens and fIREHOSE - sulky, brooding and utterly brilliant."
