Landing online today ”The Common Clod” which closes out the album A Life Diagrammatic, uses sampled noise to hammer home the damaging role of traditions in our present – and how these traditions often prevent positive changes in our future – and builds from distorted, industrial drums and wailing, siren-like guitars into repeated ruminations of “it’s comical, the common cold,” from Newton. Permeated throughout by a tangible sense of unease, it leaves the record on a questioning note, beckoning you back in for a second look at the album’s many enclosed secrets.
