The Clean: Point That Thing Somewhere Else
The Clean: Mashed (Arch Hill)

What can you say? The Clean recorded live during their '07 national tour.
Really, enough said: David Kilgour's guitar just gets more mercurial and expressive over time (if sometimes pulling back from the edginess of previous decades) and Hamish and Robert create and ride these often oceanic surges of sound. But nuance is everywhere also.
Magic at high volume -- and the version of Point That Thing here is a complex narrative in sound.
