You take the Hudson Line

Pretty sure this isn't the full lineup
The titular image of “Clutching Stems” by the Ladybug Transistor perfectly encapsulates everything that’s good about indie pop. It’s sweet and dorky with a faint undercurrent of sadness and an implication of melancholy. Also, my last name is in the lyrics (see the title of this post), and singer Gary Olson sounds a bit like Lou Reed when he sings it. Rad.

This is set to an upbeat groove that mixes atmospheric keyboards with folksy strumming, faux-Brill Building synth strings and gorgeous pop melodies.

Clutching Stems is also the name of Ladybug Transistor’s upcoming album. Go to Exclaim! for the scoop.
