Cloud Cult - The Meaning of 8
Download: Cloud Cult - "Please Remain Calm"
Cloud Cult's new album The Meaning of 8 will be out April 10, and it will be awesome. Craig Minowa is one of those geniuses that you like to acknowledge publicly as a genius.
I've been hooked on Cloud Cult ever since his emotionally cathartic debut They Live on the Sun and have enjoyed watching their popularity grow over the last two years and I am certainly not dissappointed with The Meaning of 8, which will take the indie-music scene by storm. Plus, I saw their very first show at the Quest in 2003.
The songs are a bit more polished and a bit more deliberate, but they still have the ragged charm and lyrical prowess of Minowa's catalog of efforts.
Click here to stream most of the album or visit their MySpace page for more information. I will definitely be singing this album's praises in a full review the week of April 10, so stay tuned.
Oh, remember if you're in the Twin Cities, the CD Release Party for this bad boy will be on March 30 at the Varsity Theater.
