Clay Rendering, the duo of Mike Connelly (Wolf Eyes, Hair Police) and his wife Tara, prep their debut LP via Dominick Fernow's Hospital Productions. Following a pair of excellent EPs, the two are finally ready to release their debut album. Snowthorn is out November 5 via Dominick Fernow’s Hospital Productions. Fernow, who recently dropped his new Prurient album this year, also assisted in producing and Becka Diamond provided additional vocals. Watch a trailer for Snowthorn below and revisit our interview with Clay Rendering. Snowthorn tracklist: 1. ‘Maps on the Floor’ 2. ‘Swallow the Century’ 3. ‘Sight From Up Here’ 4. ‘Snowthorn’ 5. ‘River Without’ 6. ‘Fall Off the Bed’ 7. ‘Patient Days’ 8. ‘Memory Loses Momentum’ 9. ‘Night to Perish’
Two instrumentals set the stage at the beginning of the album, with the accordion-driven opener "Maps on the Floor" succeeded by "Swallow the Century," which features softly screeching feedback textures and a resounding guitar melody. Guest vocalist Becka Diamond takes the lead for "Sight from Up Here," a heart-rending '80s goth anthem with one of the album's most immediately catchy melodies.
And yet "Snowthorn," "River Without," and the incredible album closer "Night to Perish" edge the album from the bleak into the sublime, turning away from the snowy landscapes Clay Rendering so often evokes and pulling you instead deep into night. Mastered by Paul Corley and cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. This item: Snowthorn. There's a problem loading this menu right now.
