Artist: LITTLE CLAW
Title: Human Taste
Format: CD
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Little Claw was born in Detroit, Michigan during the Great Eastern Seaboard blackout of 2003. Having nothing to do, nowhere to go, Heath Heemsbergen and Kilynn Lunsford began playing their acoustic guitars and singing into the darkness. An auspicious beginning to be sure. Even now, Little Claw are still strumming and screaming into the void. Formed originally with Jamie Easter from the Piranhas on drums, the band played a string of shows, starting with their debut performance with legendary Ohio art-punks the Bizarros, which then led to the recording of the first Little Claw LP with Warn Defever (His Name Is Alive) The album was released by Ypsilanti records in 2005. Jamie left the band in the summer of 2005 and after one show as a duo, Hendrik Deherder joined up on the drums. A second LP was recorded with Matthew Smith (Outrageous Cherry) in his Hamtramck living room mid-2006 and was subsequently released by Thurston Moores Ecstatic Peace label in 2007. Later that year, there was a release of a split 7" single with Michael Yonkers on X! records. Little Claws move from the urban nightmare of Detroit to the more subtle cloudy terrors of Portland, Oregon prompted some more augmentations to the line-up: Adam Svenson (of Seattle improv band Du Hexen Hase) took over the caveman beat on the drums, freeing up Henrik to bang the synth and add additional percussion. On the road and on recordings, the Little Claw sound is graced by the touch of Toledo native, Damon Sturdivant (Puffy Areolas, Tyvek) on additional percussion and synth." "But what do they sound like anyway? They sounded like the greatest godammned fucking band on the planet the time we saw em. Two minimalist drummers, a guitar dude with a nice underhook rhythm rip and a girl with a badass no wave slather tongue tearing hell out of her slide guitar given half the chance. And not all hellbent rage either -- some nice licorice melt drizzle crud groove too. Fuckin awesome." -Thurston Moore

Title: Spit And Squalor Swallow The Snow
Format: CD
Label: Ecstatic Yod
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"CD version of 2007 release on Ecstatic Peace! Little Claws batter-rock style provokes a lot of aggression on both sides of the audience/performer divide. Originally from Michigan, they relocated soon after this album to the moister turf of Portland, Oregon (home of JOMF, Smegma, Meltzer, etc). Little Claws rituals are tribal, their tongues unknown, and their recordings for XL, Siltbreeze, Ypsilanti and other labels have taken maximum r&b in many bizarre directions. This CD reissues a newly-mastered version of their second LP, originally issued by Ecstatic Peace! in 2007. It is a monster of form-disruption and includes some of Kilynn Lunsfords most easily comprehended songs. Beauty wears many skins. Heres the proof." -Ecstatic Yod

Title: Race To The Bottom b/w Feeding You
Format: 7"
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
Hey, whaddya know, another 7"! Were knockin these things out like Kosher corn dogs at the state fair. And we aint got a singles club or nothin! This time its Little Claw thats delivering the goods, two new tracks ( Race To The Bottom/Feed You) that careen off the walls of your skull like drunken Valkyries lashing through the halls of Valhalla. What would Odin think? Who cares! Our own Roland S. Woode sez; "The evolution of Little Claw has been wondrous to behold & now their beguiling cluck has found its way into the Siltbreeze ranks. On what is their 5th vinyl outing, the band has laid down 2 distinct tracks & they are mightly gallops of ambidextrous charge. Race To The Bottom rakes across the nodules of your brain w/serrated glee while Feeding You could be a cosmic transmission from futuristic denizens who have carved Terrence Mckenna pancreas into psychedelic sweetbreads & gobbled them for lysergic sustenance. The sound is, as one of the main pie tasters from Bull Tongue recently opined, "Fucking Awesome"! Edition of 400 copies". - Siltblog
