Clara and the Great Goddamn is comprised of one very opinionated, loud-mouth, sometimes vulgar, often silly, gin drinking feminist singer/songwriter living in Chicago.
This might be a mouthful, but is crucial information for people that want to know something before plugging into ‘Asking for It (And Other Songs that will Dissapoint my Parents)’. This demo album comes across as if we are sitting in a circle of hippies with Clara being the shining middle point of attention. She sings with her tongue on her sleeve and a ukelele in her hands these songs that probably make her parents blush, but friends and other listeners are probable quite entertained or even charmed by her fun songs about ‘getting too drunk to fuck’ , Gin, cute stalking practices and everything else that comes up in her mind, and out of her mouth. She brings these uncompromising songs with a free spirit and jolliness, which feels a bit like a best breeze of fresh air with flowers in the hair. As long as your not one of her parents, feel free to tune in for some fine sing songwriter expressions:
