For today’s Monday Audio Blog (SHUT UP, IT’S CLOSE ENOUGH TO MONDAY), we chose Chicago’s heaviest sons, Cloud Mouth.
This album came to us all done and just needing a little help to put it out, as the fine folks in Cloud Mouth and Ice Age Records were in a bit of a pinch when the wonderful album art wound up costing more than they bargained for. We were fortunate enough to be able step in after all the heavy lifting was already done to help co-release this beast.
Cloud Mouth were under appreciated, but now they are one of those gems you find out about and instantly become bummed you missed out on a chance to see them. Luckily, there are some videos floating around- so you can at least pretend!
“Someone asked me what home was and all I could think of were the stars on the tip of your tongue, the flowers sprouting from your mouth, the roots entwined in the gaps between your fingers, the ocean echoing inside of your ribcage.”—E.E. Cummings (via rapscallions)
