Clowder is the first full-length album from the psychedelic rock band Whale House based in Madison, WI. This absolute monster of an album is a master class in dynamic range. Looking for grunge-inspired pop? Check out Milk, the fuzzed out anthem to ego-dissolution that ebbs and flows with sonic tension before finally erupting in a foot-stomping climax. Looking for cerebral art rock? Listen to Elephant, an ephemeral waltz filled with surrealist imagery dancing across a multicolored landscape of shimmering tones.
From the colossal drum fill that kicks off "Into the Bluffs" to the soul-cleansing swell of the String Quartet that closes "Twilight Sleep", Clowder is a tour-de-force full of twists, turns, catchy hooks, chest-rattling riffs and mind bending effects. You'll never know what to expect next but you'll enjoy every second of the ride.
