The Ladybug Transistor

The Ladybug Transistor

Clutching Stems

★★★/5

It’s been 16 years since this Brooklyn based band started making albums, this is their 7th.  The lush pop music that has characterized The Ladybug Transistor’s sound is still true as ever in Clutching Stems. This is the first album released after, drummer, San Fadyl’s death in 2007.  It is apparent that this new album was made with their past drummer’s memory in mind.  The album is sad but hopeful, most songs about love, lost unrequited, found. Lead singer, Gary Olson’s voice is nicely complimented  throughout the album by Frida Eklund’s backing vocals.
