The Daily Choice: Clover – Mr. Moon

by

Aquarium Drunkard, as I’ve said before and I’ll say again, is a bastion of great music. Their end-of-year list is as comprehensive and interesting as any I’ve dug through. They somehow manage to cultivate a special little world that plays towards record collectors and fans of new music. On any given day you can meander over to the site and find a nugget of music that will either fill in a gap from some long gone era, or expand your mind in a new and delightful way.

Clover, one of the many The Band contemporaries that I never knew about and will now spend hours obsessing over, is just one of these nuggets of discovery. Twangy and heartfelt like the band, but imbued with a vocal touch of Arlo Guthrie, this is an album you would’ve glossed right over on a search through a thrift store bargain bin. And that’s sad. Very, very sad.
