The Ladybug Transistor have been preparing new album Clutching Stems for quite some time. So long, in fact, that The Ladybug Transistor performed title track “Clutching Stems” in 2009 at the XX Merge 20th anniversary celebration in 2009. XX Merge found the group playing “Clutching Stems” in a hotel room with a quite comfortable looking Garfield pillow in the background. Take a look below.
