The Clumsy Lovers
After the Flood

L.A. Weekly calls The Clumsy Lovers’ newest CD, “A high-impact collision of Bluegrass and Celtic.” Personally, I would rather be in a high-impact collision than subjected to the agony that is this album.

Seriously. If this music was on the radio, I would happily swerve into an oncoming Mac truck and call it a life, right there. To be fair, if you love fiddles, banjos and harmonicas, you will also love this album. Conversely, if you have more than eight teeth and haven’t married a member of your immediate family, you may appreciate it less.

“Checking Out” is tolerable, mainly because it keeps the instrumentation down to a nice mellow accompaniment rather than the country-western ho-down style which sadly permeates the majority of After The Flood.
