Cloud Corner // 13th July 2012
Cloud Corner returns from a much needed rest, after an unrelenting period of scouring the internet for the best new music currently waiting to be played. However this break has only honed our senses further, and this week has provided one of the most impressive hoards Cloud Corner has ever hauled in. Stretching across both sides of the Atlantic, the ever developing scene of Manchester also adds yet another promising act to the mix, while Liverpool's rising stars Death At Sea provide a new listen shortly after their debut Liverpool show. So sit back, relax, and remain relevant.
'War Within' by Rossi
It's hardly surprising Rossi currently reside in Nashville, one of the beating hearts of music in North America. 'War Within' is a striking example of the band's staggering ability to create a sound that transcends the constraints of a simple song, and instead becomes an over-awing experience, as beautiful as it is fragile.

'Selfless' by Death At Sea
Following the blogosphere's overwhelming positive response for the band's initial demos, 'Drag' and 'Seafoam Green', Death At Sea return with a heavier effort, as 'Selfless' is built upon more driving guitars and directed lyrics, leading to an anthemic tune we'll all be chanting in the not so distant future.

'Vera' by Kadugodi
Kadugodi, other than being a pretty cool name, is an UK producer who I discovered by chance through a soundcloud crawl. He's currently got an EP up on bandcamp which is a fantastic exploration of ambient sounds, however 'Vera', which is on the EP, has a more prominent trip hop structure that makes it an incredibly addictive listen.

'Delayy' by Crap Collage
Another discovery made during a soundcloud crawl, Crap Collage are a trio from Manchester who, through their debut effort, have displayed a serious potential to create beautifully stirring chillwave, with intricate instrumentation and carefully crafted dynamics. While it's very early in their development, they are certainly well worth keeping an eye on.

'Jive Babe' by Mikhael Paskalev
Some readers of Cloud Corner may have already heard of Mikhael Paskalev, but for those who haven't he's a part Bulgarian, part Norwegian musician, based in the culturual hub that is Liverpool. His track 'Jive Babe' displays Paskalev's talents at their finest, blending his singer/songwriter charm with the jaunty, reverb tinged 50's pop sound that makes listening to the track an entirely enjoyable experience.

The Stone Roses have reunited, and within the same breath dozens of Stone Roses tribute bands saw their careers come to a sudden halt. While many media outlets, sadly, decided to focus on this incredible blatant milking of, what should have been a very dry, cash cow, I’ve spent the past fortnight trawling through the musical riches of the 405 soundcloud. This week builds yet again on the fantastic fresh crop of new music we receive, so please do keep contributing your tracks! [read more]
Oh hi October. Where's the year going? It seems like only yesterday that summer was upon us, but that sort of thing is well and truly finished with now that we're well into autumn. The leaves are falling, the weather's getting colder, animals are gathering food for the winter, and so on. [read more]
Cloud Corner IV Ho there! How do you find yourself on this fine Cloud Corner episode IV day? Happy Cloud Corner epi. 4 day!

And so another fortnight has passed, and what a fortnight it has been. The integration of Spotify into Facebook has only increased the already well equipped tool box of the digital-age stalker, and we’ve had to bid farewell to the great R.E.M. who have called it a day after creating 15 albums of pure gold (and occasionally absolutely guff).
