Post-rock dreamscapes.

Two of their members (guitarist Bryce Dessner and violinist Padma Newsome) may also play with splendid American alt country/gothic disco outfit The National, but Clogs are a very different animal indeed. A mostly instrumental ensemble featuring bassoon, melodica, viola, mandola and ukulele in their line-up, they move between chamber pop, avant classical, post-rock and nu-folk territories, using slow-build and repetition techniques to create sensuous, subtle but emotionally overwhelming dreamscapes, whose luminous beauty makes pigeonholing nigh on impossible.
