Cloud Cult MP3s, News & Tour Dates
“Cloud Cult records in a geothermally-powered studio, prints its CDs on recycled materials, donates 100 percent of its after-expenses profit to environmental charities and makes environmental information available at its shows.
Brad Minowa, Cloud Cult’s mastermind, organic farmer and founder of the Earthology record label, wouldn’t make music any other way. But Cloud Cult doesn’t make the kind of “all one love let’s jam together” schlock. Cloud Cult’s brand-spankin’ new CD, Advice from the Hungry Hippopotamus, has a little bit of everything. It would be entirely appropriate to call it epic, even, despite the dippy name. But what else would be expected from the band that Minnesota Music Awards nominated “2004 Artist of the Year” along with Prince and Paul Westerberg?” [Eugene Weekly]
* Check our Cloud Cult’s music in the new documentary “Green Green Water”. An impacting look how the hydroelectric aspects of our energy consumption are negatively impacting the Cree and Inuit. View the film trailer here (Cloud Cult’s “9 Months” from “Who Killed Puck?” is in the opening background)
