225: “4:08” by Clutchy Hopkins

Have you seen this white guy with a beard?The Life of Clutchy Hopkins (2006) is a rich experience, as well as fully enumerated, each song named by its length. Every song title standing like a gravestone marking the run-time of its inhabitant. But it seems the life of Clutchy Hopkins was not fully captured in just these 12 songs, since Clutchy has shared a couple more releases since then.

Clutchy Hopkins is an “anonymous” artist (or a few), working under pseudonym, and I like the guys’ style, whoever they is. Here’s a page on clutchyhopkins.com dedicated to providing the most up to date theories on his identity. I’d say it’s clever marketing, but I don’t think Clutchy’s touching many charts, so it can’t be all that clever.

“4:08” is aptly named, if nothing else. (The YouTube video below has 1:30 of silence at the end.) Listen to it yourself for the rest, and enjoy.
