If you want something done right, you gotta do it your damn self. Clarke Howell, the eponymous front-woman (and only member) of Clarke and the Himselfs knows this all too well.
In her second release with A Fistful of Vinyl, Clarke goes multi-instrumental. Think if Dick Van Dyke from Mary Poppins started a one-man garage band, complete with chunky riffs and melancholic, toe-tappin’ refrains.
Watch the video of Clarke and the Himselfs performing “Odyssey” now and keep checking back for more from Clarke and from A Fistful of Vinyl!
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.
