The Ladybug Transistor's new album Clutching Stems is now in stores, and the band will bring their new songs on the road this week! Prefix Media reviewed the new album saying "Clutching Stems is the band's finest record since The Albemarle Sound, and the kind of pop record that may break your heart, may even tear you apart, but it's also generous and complex enough to put you back together in the end."
Blurt's Lee Zimmerman says Clutching Stems is "as intoxicating as ever, it conveys a jubilant first impression that lingers long after."
Order Clutching Stems now on CD in the Merge store, and don't miss The Ladybug Transistor on tour beginning June 28 including special west coast dates!
