By now, you’ve all got the scoop on the Cloud Room, right? Jesus, I hate to link to Pitchfork, but here ya go. It’s actually a decent story. Anyway, I’m usually telling my wife to listen to this band or that band. But when she came home one day and said, “Have you listened to the Cloud Room?” I had no clue who she was talking about. She heard the insanely catchy Hey Now Now on Sirius and was hooked.
Of course, the trick with a band who punches out a great track is to get past that song and find some meat on the rest of the album (buy here), which I do believe there is on the group’s self-titled debut. I’m sure you know where to find Hey Now Now (maybe even at the group’s Web site). Here’s a couple different tracks:
