CLUTCH Earth Rocker

Album · 2013 · Hard Rock
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Earth Rocker" is the 10th full-length studio album by US hard rock act Clutch. The album was released through Weathermaker Music in March 2013. It´s been four years and a lot of touring since the release of "Strange Cousins from the West (2009)", but Clutch have always been a band that did things their own way and when they wanted to. "Earth Rocker" is produced by Machine, who also produced "Blast Tyrant (2004)", and because of his way of working, the band had to plan and compose the tracks in detail before entering the studio. A lot of their earlier albums were more or less written in the studio while jamming.

That has resulted in a more trimmed and "to the point" sound. They haven´t sounded this energetic and hard rocking since "Blast Tyrant (2004)", and while all intermediate albums have been of the band´s usual high standard, they have generally been more laid back in nature, and "Earth Rocker" is to my ears a welcome return to a more hard rocking concise sound. There are mellower moments on the album too, most notably in "Gone Cold", but they are generally few and far between.

...and damn they rock hard! The opening title track positively blew my away, and fortunately "Earth Rocker" is one of those albums where all tracks on the album are memorable. Of course the excellent musicianship, charm and great warm humour of the band will always save them, but this time around the material are simply on a higher level than usual. The sound production is spot on too. Warm and organic yet sharp and powerful. Other highlights, in addition to the title track, which I have already mentioned, are "D.C. Sound Attack!" (that harmonica is so charming), "Book, Saddle, & Go" and "The Wolf Man Kindly Requests…". It´s through and through a great album though and a 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

Earth Rocker is the tenth full-length album from Clutch, the unique American rock band (who’s style fits vaguely around the Stoner Rock end of the spectrum without fitting perfectly in). It was produced by Machine and released on Weathermaker Music in 2013.

If you haven’t heard Clutch before, but like any sort of Hard Rock or Metal music you should consider checking them out. They are the sort of band that once you hear, you love forever, absolutely consistent in quality and inspiration both live and in the studio. If you even suspect you may like them, I highly recommend that you pursue that interest, you’ll probably discover your new favourite band.

Sometimes the band seem like a no-surprises purist rock band, designed for a bar full of working men, but then sometimes they’ll break out a metallic edge for a few riffs, sometimes they take a turn into funk, soul or blues territory. It all blends perfectly together, into some of the most memorable and attention grabbing music you’re likely to hear. Two of the main adjectives you’ll see associate with the band are ‘personality’ and ‘character.’

Neil Fallon, the band’s iconic frontman continues to impress the listener with his dramatic and charismatic vocals, which evoke both a zealous preacher-man and a down-to-earth work colleague at the same time, full of flair and personality, but without feeling like an inaccessible rock star.

The lyrics, always interesting on a Clutch record, are a mixture of moods and tones, from clever and poetic to dumb rock fun, funny, intriguing and insightful, often within a single verse. The album also has a surprisingly political tone in places, balanced of course with things like a song about dumping your Robot-girlfriend for a newer model. As always you’ll find little lyrical gems that you just can’t wait to tell somebody about.

Clutch aren’t just a one-personality band however, each musician is a master of his instrument, there are bass lines and drum fills that will stick in your head for days just as easily as any quirky lyric or memorable vocal hook. Some of J.P Gaster’s little touches on the bells or floor tom will bring a smile to your face, and Tim Sult throws in little leads here and there that elevate the songs to new levels. Dan Maines ties it all together masterfully with big grooves and solid clunky drive.

If you are a fan of the band already, you may wonder what direction the band have taken this time around. Is it further down the path of ‘Pigtown Blues’ and ‘Basket Of Eggs,’ is it a return to their earliest Hardcore roots, or is it a radical departure into Lounge Jazz?

The album opens with the storming and bombastic one-two punch of the Title-Track and ‘Crucial Velocity,’ the former sounding like a mixture of ‘Pure Rock Fury’ and ‘Power Player’ and the latter sounding like a vague mixture of ‘Minatour’ and ‘Mercury’ without repeating either. It’s a solid statement of intent. Together, they set the tone for the whole album quite nicely, that being Clutch’s characteristic personality filled music, with a few of the lessons they learned exploring their bluesy latter day albums, added to the top of the bombastic and masterfully produced sound and style of their Blast Tyrant and Robot Hive period. Elsewhere, ‘Unto The Breach’ and ‘Book, Saddle And Go’ keep up that fire and energy.

The band do add some balance with ‘D.C Sound Attack’ which would fit well into either of this album’s predecessors, since it containing harmonica, cowbells and a bluesy Five Horse Johnson (a band with whom Clutch frequently collaborate) feel in general, as well as the fine acoustic track ‘Gone Cold’ which is a haunting and hypnotic slow number that provides a great counterpoint to all the fast rock songs.

You could sum it up as being one of Clutch’s most direct, fast and hard hitting albums to date, but that would be all ignoring the variety on offer from the acoustic track to the proggy direction at the end of ‘Oh Isabella.’ You could say it’s a step away from their bluesy work, but that would be ignoring things like the blues tinge on the fast riff of ‘Unto The Breach’ and the harmonica on ‘D.C Sound Attack.’ You could say it’s a return to Robot Hive and Blast Tyrant, but it’s a lot shorter and more focused.

Overall, its just a strong set of songs. A damn, damn strong set of songs. Its lean, memorable and there is nothing in the way of filler. It all flows well together, the levels of musicianship are high, it sounds fantastic due to its marvelous production job and it has a lot of character. If you like Clutch already it is a must-have, it’s a fresh and vital sounding blast of Clutch doing what they do best with enough of a twist not to sound like they’re repeating themselves. If you are new to the band, it would be a great place to start. If you buy this album and love it, all the better, because you’ve got about two decade’s worth of almost flawless back catalogue to fall in love with afterwards.

CLUTCH Pigtown Blues

Pigtown Blues is the new non-album single by the amazing and eclectic American Stoner Rock band Clutch. The musical direction is far from Stoner Rock however, Clutch continue their experimentation and career development even further and the direction is more in the vein of both the lighter side of their last two bluesier albums, Beale Street’ and Strange Cousins’ and even more specifically in the vein of their recent Basket Of Eggs Bonus EP from the reissued version of Blast Tyrant.

The main track, the single ‘Pigtown Blues’ is an upbeat shuffly blues number with an infectious chorus and some wonderful guitar picking. Its a great song and indicative of the fact that Clutch can handle different musical styles really well while still maintaining their own distinct charm and identity. Neil Fallon’s vocals are superb as always and the band do a great job of showing of their chops while still giving off a ramshackle jam band vibe.

The B-Side is a reworking of the opening track from Strange Cousins’ ‘Motherless Child.’ This reworking is entitled acoustic, but it is a little bit more adventurous than just a run through of the track with the power turned off, the song is restructured, the signature guitar intro is gone and the track is given an organ driven, smokey and hypnotic vibe almost reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Voodoo Child,’ but without the Psychedelic side.

If you only liked their earlier stuff and don’t like their recent flirtations with the Blues then this is probably something you should avoid. Its definitely not going to win over a fan who loves ‘Earthworm’ and hates ‘The Regulators’ or ‘Let A Poor Man Be’ for example. If you enjoyed the Basket Of Eggs release and if you are up for more of Clutch’s recent direction then this is a great little release and I’d recommend checking it out.

"Strange Cousins from the West" is the 9th full-length studio album by US hard rock act Clutch. The album was released in July 2009 by Weathermaker Music. Since "From Beale Street to Oblivion (2007)", Mick Schauer (Hammond Organ, Hohner Clavinet and Wurlitzer Electric Piano) has left the band and as a result Clutch are down to the original four-piece again.

...Mick Schauer´s departure also means a slight change in sound as the use of keyboards/organs is very sparse on "Strange Cousins from the West" compared to their omnipresence on "Robot Hive/Exodus (2005)" and "From Beale Street to Oblivion (2007)". "Strange Cousins from the West" generally features a more stripped down and raw sound with bass, guitar, drums and vocals as the main ingredients. While both predecessors are charming and warm bluesy hard rock albums, I enjoy that the band have produced a more raw album this time around. The more raw sound production further enhances that experience. It´s in the detail department though as Clutch still sound unmistakably like Clutch. Hard rocking bluesy riffing, a strong rythm section and Neil Fallon´s deep and strong vocals in front.

"Strange Cousins from the West" features some absolutely killer tracks like the opening trio of songs: "Motherless Child", "Struck Down" and "50,000 Unstoppable Watts" and of course THE highlight of the album "Minotaur". The latter is one of the darkest and heaviest tracks yet by Clutch. Unfortunately like on most Clutch releases the album settles a bit towards the end with some more standard tracks. There´s nothing bad about those tracks, but they are not of the high standard of the best tracks on the album.

...so a couple of tracks into "Strange Cousins from the West" I´m ready to give this album a full 4 star rating, but towards the end it´s a 3.5 - 4 star rating. A great album that could have been even greater had all tracks stood out like the best tracks do.

"From Beale Street to Oblivion" is the 8th full-length studio album by US hard rock act Clutch. The album was released in March 2007 by DRT Entertainment.

The music on the album continues the warm bluesy hard rock of "Robot Hive/Exodus (2005)". "From Beale Street to Oblivion" is the second album to feature Mick Schauer on Hammond Organ, Hohner Clavinet and Wurlitzer Electric Piano and his contributions to the sound are welcome and pleasant. However the basis in the music are still hard rocking bluesy guitar riffs, a great playing rythm section and the strong and deep end vocals by Neil Fallon. The lyrics are as always subtly humourous and which is also emphasised by song-titles like "When Vegans Attack" and "Mr. Shiny Cadillackness". Clutch both know how to rock out like they do on the two opening tracks "You Can't Stop Progress" and "Power Player" but they also play slower and more mellow at times and even crossover to more regular blues territory on a couple of tracks. Tracks like "Electric Worry" and "Mr. Shiny Cadillackness" which features harmonica playing by Eric Oblander of Five Horse Johnson represents the latter style.

I have lots of praise for "From Beale Street to Oblivion". Excellent musicianship, warm and organic sound production and professional songwriting. However "From Beale Street to Oblivion" suffers some of the same flaws as most other Clutch albums. While the songwriting is of high quality there are still a couple of tracks that I consider filler. Especially the latter part of the 12 track, 48:18 minutes long album features a couple of tracks that don´t stand out enough. "From Beale Street to Oblivion" is overall a very enjoyable album though and a 3.5 - 4 star rating is deserved.
