New Clov Release: My Country's At War

We’re ready to release yet another song in conjunction with all the Inauguration to-do. This one is an Exit Clov tune, called ‘My Country’s At War.’ We recorded it way back in October 2007 with Devin Ocampo.

Highlights from Clov Tour

When Exit Clov is on tour, things can easily get out of hand, like vans breaking down and CD’s getting left at a club in a city 6 hours away. But this past trip, things got really out of hand — Matt Past (ie Brett) in peak fashion. Here he is raiding the pantry. And… Read more »

The Making of ‘District Menagerie: The Single’. Installment #1

We were off to the Bellflur mansion last night to start screenprinting the new single.

Back inside, we finished Photoshopping the artwork and… Read more »

First Clov Practice in NYC

So when two of our bandmates left for New York, all hell broke loose in the Clov camp. But from the molten disarray rose an exceptionally brilliant idea … to switch off weekend practices in DC and New York. For those of us traveling that weekend, we’d meet for 3-4 hour practice each day and… Read more »

NYC Meeting with Stylecaster

Em and I were in NYC this past weekend to get some stuff done. We met up with Brett in Chelsea to talk with the guys from Stylecaster.com about an upcoming project together. Brett was fashionably late…excuse the pun, and it was pretty brisk outside, so Em and I went to shiver and wait across… Read more »

Congratulations Brett

You’re officially a nerd. I thought Brett couldn’t top himself after getting 100% and 98% on his Geology exams. These pictures were taken at a Borders (fittingly) in New York a few weeks ago. Now he’s done and gotten the highest grade in his class. … Geology of all subjects. It’s a trip to hear… Read more »
