premiere: Candy Claws | "Silent Time of Earth"

"Each song on Hidden Lands contains a sample of every other song on the album." Sounds like a potentially ill-advised gimmick regarding the new record from Fort Collins, Colorado's Candy Claws, but repeat listens to the glowing Hidden Lands reveal an incredibly lush, enveloping soundtrack for warm summer nights. If the swirling, shuffling dreamscape "Silent Time of Earth" sounds like something created by mystical woodland creatures, I think that was the intent: the record is "a musical companion to Robert Ketchum's The Secret Life of the Forest" (the group wrote the lyrics by running selections from the book through Translation Party). You're going to want to break out the headphones for this one.

Hidden Lands is out August 3 on Twosyllable. Also recommended: check the group's blog, where you can see "the visual side" of their music. Here's another one from the new album:

i know this is old news and a total understatement, but, fuck p4k bites off this blog so fucking hard.

seriously, the day you post about candy claws the track goes up on the playlist. this is obviously not the first time, nor will it be the last, but it's seriously lame.

I found candy claws a few years back on myspace and downloaded "catamaran" and "the knife" off their demos, but had since been unable to find anything by them. I'm really glad to see that they have some new stuff, and can't wait to hear more! Yay!!
