Imagine a world where no genre, age or past mattered - not in music, not in life!
CLUTCH CARGO imagine that on their first CD, " Wide Open " - a musical mystery tour through delicate Drum n' Bass and terrapin - textured Trip - Hop touched by Baroque Pop , moody mutated Jazz - creamy Philly soul and psychedelia - old and new - it's members grew up with and within .
In 2000, CLUTCH CARGO released an EP " The Chill Trip " that happened to feature visiting dignitary Liam Gallagher (OASIS) who , upon visiting CLUTCH's residential environment Bar Noir by accident , dug CARGO's scene enough to jam with them on the spur of the moment.
" Wide Open " : a stunning (dis) array of enveloping eclectic moods features the creepy Bjork - meets - Bacharach bacchanalia of ' Someone Else " . The liquid noir of "Fragile Girl ". The aptly titled " Blue Sky " lingers between a watery midnight of pedal steel mysteries and a dawn touched by dub bliss. " Eternal Kiss " finds it's pucker in childhood nursery rhymes , horn tooting funk and heavenly house sounds.
"For us, creating is getting close to God" says Manney of CLUTCH CARGO's expressionist take on their humanity, a process to often left behind in electronic mind/body musics.
"Wide Open" is about channeling energies, exploring daily emotions & communications, with people of all ages, on a soul to soul level.
Imagine giving CLUTCH CARGO an Amen for that !
