IPR Studio One Underground – Monday Mourners + Clarence Tilton
Join us for IPR Studio One Underground — Iowa Public Radio’s monthly live series featuring Iowa and touring artists, broadcasted live from The Basement. Attend the show or tune in to listen live.
Clarence Tilton formed in 2014, consolidated from the debris of an elemental collision of whiskey and old-fashioned gear. Based in Omaha, Nebraska, CT continues to craft songs and sentiment that push boundaries while paying suitable homage to the greats. Country- rock- blues- folk– the label that settles out is usually Americana. The group toggles between pedal steel dripping ballads, feverishly picked telecaster driven ditties, and surprisingly loud riff-anchored stomps. A night with CT includes a shit ton of guitars, four uniquely contributing vocalists, and a rhythm section that is equal parts dance and churn. Their second release is a six song EP recorded much like their first in Wisner, NE. Five of these songs are also available on a split 12 inch vinyl with good friends the Monday Mourners from Des Moines, IA. Work continues on a full length record, tentatively scheduled for a late 2018 release.
Just a Midwestern band trying to correct the contemporary misunderstanding of what country music is.
