A few years ago, Clipd Beaks was a band most associated with a loud, chaotic, irreverent spirit and an equally unharnessed personality: In interviews members talked (jokingly, we presume) about performing oral sex in American Apparel stockrooms and (not jokingly) about witnessing a crackhead trying to use the bathroom on stage during one of their performances. But if the Oakland band’s latest EP, Lost Offerings, is any indication, it’s toned things down a bit — or at least learned when to scale back and when to go full blast. “Womb to Tomb” perfectly exploits the soft-loud dynamic within its psychedelic haze, but at base it’s a well-crafted pop song. “I’m really proud of what we’ve done and I think people would respond to the record,” wrote vocalist Nick Barbeln in an email to the Express a few weeks ago. The ten-year-old band will celebrate the release of its limited-edition cassette this week at The Night Light (311 Broadway, Oakland), with Elephant in Castle, Hiss & Hum, and Safe Word.
