"Year Of The Spider, the band's sixth studio album, rages against death and disease with the power of a thousand angry Ronettes. Songs like "All Of My Cryin'," "Mary, Don't Go," and "Year Of The Spider," pulse with girl-group elegance and punk ferocity. On a Clams record, you always get both.

That harsh/soft balance often comes down to Clams keyboardist Will Sprott. "Different keyboards lend themselves to different tones," Sprott says, "a Rhodes [piano] is more soft and bell-like, whereas a Wurlitzer has these chunky, abrasive bites. So when I'm deciding which instrument to play on a song, I'm thinking, what does the song make you feel? What do you want it to communicate? It's like, do you want this organ to scream at you or soothe you?"" (Promo Copy)
