In the Garden of Lady Worden

The primarily instrumental band Clogs finally finds its voice, with Shara Worden (mp3) -- she of My Brightest Diamond and the Decemberists -- leading the vocal charge in their new album The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton. (The album also features Sufjan Stevens and Matt Berninger.)

Wow, this is like a reunion of the 2007 Music Now Festival, which was, btw, completely amazing, so I can only imagine this album will be as well.

But I like them because they're instrumental. They sound totally Windham Hill, now. Yuck.

I love Shara Worden's voice, and I rarely go a day without listening to Bring Me The Workhorse (the whole album). I hope this Clogs thing retains her uncanny sense for drama and composition. And even if it doesn't, well, we'll always have Feelin' Good.

Shara doing "Crazy on You" during The Decemberists' most recent Hazards of Love tour was incredible. Imagine hearing what you hear in the video amplified. Nuts, I tell you.

This is the first time I've heard her or of her. I like. Reminds me of Faun Fables singer Dawn McCarthy.

sounds like early Joanna Newsom being attacked by a shop vac.

Shara's awesome. I used to run a Jeff Buckley tribute in Toronto a few years back and we had her up once or twice. Absolutely sublime version of Gunshot Glitter.

I learned from a recent Mefi FPP that she's not very good because "her most famous song is a cover."

Just kidding, I love her songs and singing. Thanks for the post -- I'll listen to this when I get a chance.
