Listen to Sasha Grey

Zack Hadley, frontman in Austin's up-and-coming rock group Frantic Clam, has a soft spot for actress/model/singer Sasha Grey. His heart divided between passion for the talented and beautiful adult actress and a burning desire to please everyone (especially Mom), Hadley says this piece was born as a "soft acoustic number dedicated to Hall and Oates" and, after falling in love with a custom-built fuzz pedal, ended up sounding like "The Pixies and T-rex crammed into a blender and set to puree".

We have been super stoked on Frantic Clam since they posted songs (including Korean Beauty Queen) here on Uvumi, and we couldn't be more excited for their upcoming LP due out in Spring of 2010. With the release of this new single (one of three songs on their brand new EP titled Lolita: Singles), we are blown away by how far they have come since Anatomica, and how much their sound has matured and come into its own. Sasha Grey is an absolute masterpiece of songwriting, a brilliant production that, despite its apparent simplicity, is layered with incredible and well-timed guitar tracks, a superb bass line, percussion so fitting you almost don't notice it, and exactly the right amount of piano backup. Recorded at Cacophony Recorders in Austin and mastered by Joe Lambert Mastering in NYC, there is no question that everything really came together in the production of this single.

Sasha Grey has already attracted the attention of American Apparel (Grey models for the clothing company), and has been mentioned on local blog Austin Town Hall.

Frantic Clam is planning an EP release party at the Beauty Bar in Austin on January 14, 2010, and we expect to see each and every one of you there for a fantastic lineup of great rock bands, great sponsors, and most importantly an opportunity to get your hands on a copy of the new EP Lolita: Singles.
