4.0 out of 5 stars Floating on a musical cloud March 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD
One of the most interesting musical finds I have had in quite some time; this is not your typical indie band...not by a long shot. Cloud Cult and the band's self-created record label, Earthology Records have shunned major label attention and continue to work from their geothermal energy powered organic farm as a not-for-profit music centered environmental and philosophical movement. Not exactly the normal indie band bio.

One reason Cloud Cult has remained independent is the band's dedication to being eco-friendly. Concert tours are made "green" by countering CO2 emissions from travel with acres of tree planting, purchasing wind power credits to power the stages and equipping the tour van with solar panels.

In the early 90s founder and front man Craig Minowa was pursuing his degree in Environmental Science and doing every sort of odd job (Including dressing up as Barney the dinosaur for children's parties) to stay afloat while pursuing the music dream. His first release was under the name The Shade Project in 1995. Such was the budget that Minowa used pots, buckets, couch cushions and whatever else he could find to make sounds for instruments he couldn't afford.

In 2000 Minowa released Who Killed Puck as the Cloud Cult. But without any funds to market the album his financial situation became worse. His son, Kaidin, was born shortly after, marking Cloud Cult's transition away from live performances and into strictly a studio band. Minowa spent most of the next two years focused on his family and environmental work. In 2002 his son unexpectedly died and his marriage crumbled in the wake of that grief. At that point Minowa threw himself completely into music as a way to deal with the tragedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm blown away. November 8, 2008
By MDS
Format:MP3 Music
For years I've been trying to expand my horizons, a refugee from the long stagnant jungle and lounge genres who had almost given up on finding anything to satisfy my desire for movement of body and soul. Winding along a path of pleasure, I came to A Silver Mt. Zion and took a free spin with the emotional grip of Sigur Ros, moving forward I've grown with each step but months ago I hit a brick wall.

Today, while obsessively trying to locate a song that my memory fails to recall in any detail, I happened upon mention of Cloud Cult performances in Seattle. Compelled by the itch needing a good scratch, I ignored it and continued the search. As the frustration continued, I changed the query syntax and terms over and over, Cloud Cult continued to show up and a nagging curiosity eventually won me over. I'm delighted with the result.

In a musical era where pop has somehow become an even more simplified formula, Cloud Cult stands out with a rare few who have emerged in the dawn of this century with richly layered compositions played so skillfully as to wrap around the lyrical performance to form a seamlessly integrated five course audio treat. Written with passion, the lyrical themes are reflections of history and issues yet covered in a timeless fashion.

I am no expert in music theory, but I know what I like and make an effort to hear what's out there. I've bought three albums today, all Cloud Theory, and it is to their credit that I'm blown away by every track.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Entire Excellent Album January 1, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is truly an album experience, not just a bunch of songs. Each song has pieces of other songs, whether it be a few measures of bells or a familiar stanza of melody. Though each song is also unique enough to skip around to favorite songs on a short drive, the best listen is all the way through the album.

References to Flaming Lips and Neutral Milk Hotel are justified. The level of cohesion between songs and instrumental diversity is comparable to NMH's "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea," while the relentlessly catchy (and high pitched) vocal melodies remind me of later Flaming Lips. Despite the references, Cloud Cult is not at all derivative and it's difficult to name a "sounds like" band.

Any album that appeals to both me and my girlfriend is easy to recommend because she has very different tastes than I do. An excellent album from start to finish. It is refreshing to find such a high level of production from an indie label.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, love, love this cd! May 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Singer sounds like the singer of Flaming Lips. Music is not as noise orianted as the FL. Songs are beat driven, many with an excellent build up.
