Josienne Clarke - A Small Unknowable Thing [CD]
Catalogue No.: CPR04CD
Release Date: 13th August 2021
Josienne Clarke is set to release her new album A Small Unknowable Thing on August 13th. For the first time since her early beginnings, Clarke is flying solo. No label, no musical partner, no producer. Clarke is in complete control of her songwriting, arranging, producing, release schedule and musical direction. While the themes might feel familiar to her fans, the musical journey will not, with Clarke taking in a wide range of new and diverse influences across the album – from Adrianne Lenker’s ‘Hours Were The Birds’, IDLES’ ‘Colossus’, Radiohead’s ‘Airbag’ to Phoebe Bridgers ‘Garden Song’ and more, the album’s touchstones span a vast musical collage of anger and hope. Lead single, ‘Sit Out’ is frustration and defiance in sonic form. “All you stand for / Makes me want to sit out” she sings over thick, driving guitars and an almost Beastie Boys-esque drum beat.
Josienne Clarke’s brand-new label Corduroy Punk Records launches with its debut LP release, bringing you her quintessentially succinct singer/songwriter bangers & ballads on electric guitars, bass, keys & drums on digital, vinyl & compact disc.
‘A Small Knowable Thing’ is alt-indie for fans of Julia Jacklin, Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen, Fiona Apple, Boy Genius, on heavy 180-gram clear vinyl with orange and blue splatter in a bright, gloss gatefold
sleeve with lyric insert & accompanying CD edition with gloss gatefold and 8-page lyric booklet.
