HWY-007: Stick Music by Clogs



Clogs’ third album, Stick Music, is a tour-de-force concept album conceived by Newsome and Dessner. Simply put: it is a deep exploration of strings. They are bowed, struck, plucked, and treated as never before. The results are intimate, melodic, gorgeous. One moment they resonate like gentle raindrops, the next they’re woven into dizzying eddies of sound. The record includes performances by cello virtuoso Erik Friedlander – a friend and downtown scene veteran (John Zorn’s Masada, Laurie Anderson, Dave Douglas) celebrating the success of his recent solo debut, Maldoror.
