The Wednesday Club – who are A.J. Miller, E. Max Broady and John Perry – have released a new two-part album, So Claw /Sour Crow, on their own Cath'n'Dad Records.
These 20 songs (10 per album) are indiepop with echoes of Galaxie 500, The Wedding Present, The Field Mice and others. Their diverse subject matter covers, among other things: Vaslav Nijinsky, being frightened of going out, Bill Clinton and toothpicks. The records are intended to be heard as two separate albums, released at the same time.
The Wednesday Club formed in Leeds in 2004 as a bedroom-based recording project influenced by Guided By Voices, Pavement and Neutral Milk Hotel. Now based in different cities, the three singer-songwriters who comprise the band contribute three different indiepop perspectives which are brought together through a shared love of the absurd. They have previously released two albums, No, You Broke Jo’s Amp (2007) and SOAP (2008) both on Doot Doot Records.
The albums are freely available to download at: http://thewednesdayclub.org/so-clawsour-crow/ (and head there for a bizarre but wonderful mix of lyrics, influences and explanation of those titles, among other things).
