For all that's inspiring true and diverse in the music industry and all its waves, Cloud Cult has been creating for nearly a decade. The Meaning Of 8 slid under my doorstep today, and I'm impressed thusfar. I won't throw down farce stories of previous recording listening experiences. This is my first experience, but it won't be my last.
Melting the genres of all mankind's music with intelligible creation and songwriting, Cloud Cult has a knack for catchy rhythms of diverse instrumentation. Whether its something perfected, or they we're born into is not for me to say. Just the first couple of tracks mince the shiny moods of respectable formations like Jane's Addiction and Cake to form a tasty salad of melodies.
Songs like Pretty Voice subtlely build tempo between lyrical and instrumental harmony. Then of course there's the following track Brain Gateway that gorge a different brand of Cloud Cult, brash and aggressive, bellowing and bold, like the sweet little boy who shows up to a party shy, but by the end of the gathering winks at you with a confidence in such a different style.
Beat driven, rock slopped, and acoustically economic all the while involving organized yet random sounds, Cloud Cult has impressed these ears left me wondering why the hell haven't I cared before?
