Featured Release

aaa

Clutch – Book of Bad Decisions
Genre: Hard Rock / Stoner Rock / Blues
Label: Weathermaker

The ever-enduring groove/funk/blues/stoner/boogie masterminds might be 25 years removed from their debut, but there are no signs of slowing down for the Maryland-based quartet. Instead, the band have settled into a sweet spot with their genre-bending formula, tweaking elements and ingredients album-by-album so that each record is a sonic shape-shifter (bringing in producer Vance Powell once again) while adhering to the Clutch blueprint. Book of Bad Decisions keeps this train running, bringing in additional brass instrumentation to complement the ‘weaponized funk’ on lead single “In Walks Barbarella”, while the slide guitar-laden “Hot Bottom Feeder” – complete with Maryland crab cakes recipe in the video – and rollicking “Gimme the Keys” further illustrate the record’s diversity in sound. There’s plenty of snarky social commentary as well – see “How to Shake Hands” for instance – and the album’s fervent energy parallels the band’s… 25 years and counting!
