Clem Snide – Soft Spot

Aptly-titled fourth album from woozy New York quartet

Trending Now

Clem Snide grow ever more hushed and pastoral with each album. Songwriter Eef Barzelay recently became a father, and all traces of his Big Apple cynicism have given way to gurgling smiles and lullabies. “There’s nothing to be scared of,” he murmurs as he hits the soft spot on “Strong Enough”. Vulnerability and innocence reign, and the lamb will soon lie down on Broadway. All that’s missing from this mush is a cover of “Puff The Magic Dragon”. Deeply disappointing after the triumphs of Your Favorite Music and The Ghost Of Fashion.
