Candy Claws, Aan and Desert Noises

The lilting exotica of Candy Claws sounds like it came forth from a pastel-colored beachside cabana, lit by tiki torches and soundtracked by the soft crush of waves gently lapping the beach. Candy Claws actually come from Fort Collins, Colorado, and their Hidden Lands album is a remarkable piece of Brian Wilson-philia, richly and weirdly orchestrated, although lacking the sharply defined verses and choruses that Wilson trafficked in. That's okay: The duo of Ryan Hover and Kay Bertholf—augmented with additional musicians for live performance—don't need hooky melodies to make Candy Claws sound enveloping. Rather, their somnambulistic lullabies feel like the adventures of Little Nemo in Slumberland come alive. NED LANNAMANN
