What keeps us together when it all feels like it’s falling apart? Clarke Howell of Clarke and the Himselfs perfectly translate it. In their premiere with A Fistful of Vinyl, she sings a melancholy ballad that goes out to all those who are struggling.
“Frame” touches on what keeps us together, and what we fall apart without. It’s the song we all need to take to heart to help us through the self-isolation and uncertainty ahead. Its somber rhythm comes as a comfort, reminding us that as isolated as we all feel, we are never truly alone.
A Fistful of Vinyl is a DIY crew of volunteers run by KXLU veteran Alec Hodgman. They create live music sessions and interviews for YouTube in Los Angles with artists in and around the punk and folk music scenes. Their coverage helps to raise notoriety of small artists who make phenomenal music but don’t have a platform to share it, and celebrate the larger artists who share that mission of supporting those up-and-coming prodigies. A Fistful of Vinyl airs on KXLU 88.9 FM/Online Thursday nights at 9pm PT.
