AMERICANA ARTIST CLARENCE BUCARO’S NEW ALBUM, PENDULUM, IS OUT TODAY
“intimate literate lyrics and velvet-and-molasses vocals”
Bucaro Duets With Allison Moorer On “Strangers”
Early Radio Airplay Includes WFUV-NY And KCSN-LA
Pendulum – the new album from Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Clarence Bucaro – is out now and available at http://apple.co/1SV6V8B. Bucaro co-produced Pendulum with Tom Schick (Wilco, Ryan Adams) at The Loft, Wilco’s Chicago recording studio.
RollingStone.com – which premiered the track “Strangers” yesterday – observed, “the 10 tracks on Pendulum come to life through Bucaro’s intimate literate lyrics and velvet-and-molasses vocals, with the title track capturing the troubling yin and thrilling yang of romantic pursuits. An achingly realized display of the former comes courtesy of Bucaro’s collaboration on ‘Strangers,’ with the song’s co-writer and duet partner, Allison Moorer.”

Radio stations already playing Pendulum include: WFUV, KCSN, WOUB, WFDU, KRVM, WJCU, WVIA, KBCS, WMKY, WYCE and WHAY. Bucaro celebrated the album’s release with a show at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City earlier this week and will perform at Brooklyn’s 68 Jay Street Bar on May 28. Other upcoming dates include a June 19 concert with Rhett Butler at Chicago’s City Winery.
In an album review, NoDepression.com observed “much like Paul Simon and James Taylor, he¹s able to offer up optimism and circumspect all within the space of a single song, enticing and entrancing his listeners all in the same breath… this is the kind of album upon which reputations are built.”
PopMatters praised “Tragedy,” the first single, as “achingly gorgeous…a song full of heart and feeling.” AXS.com noted, “The joys and heartbreaks of life tend to ebb and flow at their own pace; that subject is addressed by singer/songwriter/guitarist Clarence Bucaro throughout his aptly-titled new release Pendulum…When that pendulum of life swings to a rough spot though, Bucaro is no defeatist, and that’s especially noticeable in the lyrics for new song ‘Tragedy’ where he refuses to get sucked into a lover’s constant drama.”
The video for “Tragedy” was shot near the historic Naumburg Bandshell in New York City’s Central Park and can be seen HERE. It is the first-ever music video from award-winning documentary filmmakers Micah Garen and Marie-Helene Carleton (Light on the Sea), who founded Four Corners Media and co-wrote the book American Hostage, which documented Garen’s abduction by militants in Iraq and the battle for his release.
Bucaro – praised by The New York Times for his “cozy songs that hark back to the late 1960’s Van Morrison” – is a two-time finalist in NPR’s Mountain Stage New Song Music Contest.
