The Ladybug Transistor – Clutching Stems

- by Thomas

Indie poppers The Ladybug Transistor are back with another batch of songs. “Clutching Stems” is the band’s first new material in four years and it’s basicallymore of the same from this band around Gary Olson. They’ve been through a bit of a rough patch when their drummer passed away but decided to forge on with the help of a new drummer alongside several other newbies.

None of the songs on here are bad, they’re all pleasant enough and easy on the ears. But they never really jump out and grab you. Olson still sounds like a light version of Morrissey (I’m sure there’s a joke about Morrissey’s weight in there) but they seriously need to spice things up in order to even slightly impress.
Score: 5 out of 10
