Clouds- We are above You
(Hydrahead Records HH666140)
From Aural Innovations May 2009 update
Clouds are a Boston MA based band that likes their rock, heavy, and stoned. This 11 track 39 minute CD has some really great stuff on it. I really like the psychedelic mix of some of the tracks and the heavy low end grooves. The opening track reminds me a bit of Dozer from Sweden. They have some cool melodic elements as well in their tracks but avoid being too mainstream sounding. The band also surprise like on bad Seat by throwing in a nice piano line into the mix of the slower heavy riff rock track with melodic and screamed vocals. Motion of the Ocean is like 80’s hardcore. Slow Day is yet something else totally different and influenced by the Beatles! Year Zero is more fast paced heavy rocking while Glass House Rocks starts really spacey and psychedelic rock. The CD has a great mix of stuff. Cool band..
