On their fourth full-length album - third for Twosyllable - Ceres & Calypso in the Deep Time, Fort Collins creative collective Candy Claws delve deep into new territory. The subject for the concept of this album goes beyond place and time and takes the listener on a Journey Through the Mesozoic Era. The album is divided into three parts highlighting major periods of the extinct reptiles’ history, Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. Experience it in one sitting and the story will unfold before you like a theatrical play, grandiose at times and playful at others.
Of track “Transitional Bird (Clever Girl)”, Pitchfork says:
“…in adding a palpable joy and guileless wonder to the shoegaze blueprint…Candy Claws ensure that “Transitional Bird” sounds like pretty much nothing else that’s resulted in 20+ years of Loveless worship.”

We’ve been waiting with bated breath for Joseph Murphy, the man behind Chicago’s Houtakker, to expand on songs we’d heard over the past few years. We are proud to digitally release this first offering from Houtakker.
More interested in tones, textures and melodies than technique, Houtakker just wants to make you feel good.
