ClogsClogs are a mostly instrumental project led by Bryce Dessner and Australia’s Padma Newsome, both men familiar from their membership in the acclaimed rock band, The National. Their existence predates The National, and Clogs have released four widely acclaimed albums on Brassland RecordsThom’s Night Out (2001), Lullaby for Sue (2003), Stick Music (2004), and 2006’s Lantern. They are due to release their fifth album, The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton, on March 2, 2010.

When Clogs formed they were an oddball classical ensemble in indie rock clothing. Today, however, they’re at the forefront of a scene including friends in groups The Books, Rachel’s, and Bell Orchestre.
