Our Mus-o-meter registers Ladybug Transistor's 'Clutching Stems'

The Ladybug Transistor has been making albums in Brooklyn before Williamsburg was cool, wearing its new wave influences on its sleeve. But to really get a sense of what it’s all about, we leave that up to the math of the Mus-o-meter (you can also check them out at Knitting Factory tonight).

Take the new wave aesthetic of Joy Division’s 1979 debut, “Unknown Pleasures.” Then add …

Morrissey’s inflections and melancholy on The Smiths 1986 album, “The Queens is Dead.” Then add …

The playful melodies of Belle and Sebastian on its 1996 album, “If You’re Feeling Sinister. The result?

The Ladybug Transistor’s seventh album, “Clutching Stems.”
