More Magnificent than Sigur Ros,Sufjan Stevens

from seanie in the shanty in ballyfinnane;

Oh God it's magnificent to listen to the worderful vocal heavenliness that is The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton, the latest opus from Clogs. What is the point in my reviewing this piece of modern bliss, just read the review here at All About Jazz. The Clogs are not jazz, I can assure you of that!

What kind of music? Well they themselves say "Recommended If You Like: The National, Sufjan Stevens, Bell Orchestre, Stars of the Lid, Sigur Rós, Moondog".

AMG says "There are moments of impossible beauty (“Owl of Love”), dense, but structured dissonance (“Adages of Cleansing”), and of course, whimsical, classically minded, indie folk (“On the Edge”), that when consumed all together, feel like a perfectly executed mash-up of Aaron Copland, Dead Can Dance, Bill Frisell, and Shirley Collins"
