The Clear Spots

Niagara Falls - Plays Spiral Isles / The Clear Spots - Smokehouse Debris

DW007 - Cover Image Our first split CD, two complementary mini-albums merged into one mind-altering whole. Philadelphia-based Niagara Falls follow up two fine CDs on their own Honeymoon Music label with perhaps their most evocative electro-acoustic drones to date, an aural tour of a misty archipelago located just off the coast of dreamland; 3 tracks, 30 minutes. Meanwhile, the Clear Spots roll up one of their most fried rural noise fatties yet, assembling various wreckage from last year's successful orbital barn launch into an imposing edifice that towers over the scree on the far side of the ridge; 1 25-minute track in 4 parts.

The Clear Spots - Electricity for All

Electricity For All Cover During the Great Depression, “Electricity for All” was a slogan of the Tennessee Valley Authority, part of FDR’s New Deal, as it strove to bring electric power to isolated communities in the Appalachians. Some 70 years later, the Clear Spots commemorate that wiring process by expanding the concept. Drawing on various energies both organic and otherwise, using the barn as a resonator and the holler as a natural amplifier, the trio (plus specialist aetheric-engineering friends) opens an interplanetary conduit between the dirt and the stars, beaming diverse sonic signals out into the void. Is anyone up there listening? Maybe the mountains could say… Two CDs, 17 tracks, 95 minutes.

The Clear Spots - Mountain Rock

Ten tracks spread across an hour of born-in-a-barn-falling-down psychedelic noise rock, rural electrification project improvisations, and deep-woods sasquatch rituals, lovingly recorded using tin cans and twine. As raw and ragged as you'd hope, you can smell that Appalachian soil in every blown speaker.

The Clear Spots - Mansion In the Sky

In which three of our troupe embark on an expedition deeper into the woods, re-establishing their sonic forge in an abandoned barn overlooking a deserted river valley. Divers metallurgical, chemical, and electrical experiments are undertaken and documented. Twelve tracks across forty-nine minutes, a starker and earthier breed of klang.
