Kladruy Gold Wins The Deli Seattle's Artist of the Month Poll

What began as a solo project of Ryan Cline, Kladruby Gold turned into a full-fledged band here in Seattle. Teaming up with the likes of Gary Thorstensen on lead guitar, Dustin Miller on drums, and Steve Melle on bass, the quartet began producing music with more of a rock edge. These ‘ameri-gaze’ rockers bring a southern flare to their music that gives them a rootsy edge. The band is getting ready to release their full length “Wilderness” due out this spring, with their promising single OBC available on their website. - Lucy Sherman

Interview with
 Kladruby Gold

What began as a solo project of Ryan Cline, Kladruby Gold turned into a full-fledged band here in Seattle. Teaming up with the likes of Gary Thorstensen on lead guitar, Dustin Miller on drums, and Steve Melle on bass, the quartet began producing music with more of a rock edge. These ‘ameri-gaze’ rockers bring a southern flare to their music that gives them a rootsy edge.

Ryan, you released Windshield Time by yourself under the name Kladruby Gold. What has your music gained from teaming up with Gary, Dustin, and Steve? 

Collaborating with these gents has allowed the music to stretch outside of a recording project, into  a live band approach.  When Kladruby Gold was only one person, the songs were built, with the mindset  that they must be able to be performed with only an acoustic guitar or piano; and still be compelling. Although the songs are still the priority and we write with similar asperations, the possiblities are far greater with such a talented rhythm section and accomplished lead guitarist.  There are no glass jaws, everyone of us is open to criticism.  The addition of more opinions, has also contributed to the music being looked at from outside of one brain, and forced parts to be dropped or added or treated; this is a good thing.  Mainly we just try not to take ourselves too seriously, focus on making each other better, and enjoy the time we spend doing it.  

Kladruby Gold, is there a story behind that name? 

Ha, Kladruby is a breed of horse founded by a Roman Emperor and a Czech King. I came across it in an old text book, and thought of branding a band around it. I really love both Italy and the Czech Republic, and grew up in Northern California where Gold was first discovered. In a sort of way, it seemed to be symbolic of the sound as well, at least at the time.  

You all have an album due out this spring. How long have you been working on that? 

Yes, very excited about ‘Wilderness’.  Our last EP was still going through some growing pains, and it’s comforting to now be at a place where our sound is still eclectic, but more defined. We began tracking it with Kevin Suggs at The Imperial Room about 6 months ago; we’re in the process now of putting on the final touches with Don Farwell at Earwig Studios. We are stoked to be able to work with such pros. 

What about your music maks you label it Amerigaze? 

We definitely are fans of roots music, Folk, R&B, Rock and Roll, that unite to form Americana.  However, we’re also very interested, as a band, in creating more of a dreamy, distant feel. Distortion, in its infinite forms, is often employed, not just to the guitars, but drums and vocals as well.  In short, it’s a nod to both Americana and Shoegaze; we try to swim in between the pretty and the fucked up. 

Where are your favorite places to play in Seattle?

We are so fortunate to have so many incredible venues to gig at. Honestly they’re all great, The Skylark, The Tractor, The High Dive, to name a few, but we definitely appreciate them all. 

What are some bands you've shared the bill with? Do you have friends in the area you play with? 

We had a great time a while back with The Lonely Wild, an LA band traveling through, and played a handful of shows with our friends Sweet Secrets. We’re still a young band and looking to put together more bills with more establish acts this Spring. In the interim, we make friends and play nicely with everyone.

Seattle Folk-Pop: The Horde and the Harem

Five piece folk-pop band The Horde and the Harem’s latest album “A Long Midwinter” lives up to the exact opposite of its name. A compilation of heartfelt melodies and whimsical harmonies, the album is cheerful and lighthearted enough to cure seasonal defective disorder. No upcoming shows to speak of this month, so your winter blues will have to be satisfied with streaming their music online, which might be even better because you don’t have to leave the warmth of your home. -Lucy Sherman
