Clem Snide Returns!
Wow, I had no idea this was happening. Apparently Clem Snide is about to release a brand new album entitled Hungry Bird on February 24th via 429 Records.
If you don't know them, Clem Snide was an alt-country/Americana band from New York (and Nashville) which was active for the better part of the 1990's through 2006. Technically, "band" isn't the right word -- Clem Snide was the name that lead singer and songwriter Eef Barzelay used with a rotating cast of supporting musicians. After Clem Snide "disbanded" in 2006, Eef started a "solo" career which saw him release two excellent solo albums, Bitter Honey and Lose Big, as well as several songs on the soundtrack to the indie movie Rocket Science.
Anyway, I'm a fan of pretty much everything Eef has done, and I'm thrilled to be getting new music, regardless of whose name it's under.
Oh, and here's the first track from the album:
Clem Snide, "Me No"
You can also hear two other new songs, "Hum" and "The Endless Endings", over at the band's MySpace page.
