This is one hallucinatory journey, and if I got one good advice for you, is that you shouldn’t listen to this album high, cause it could mess you up big time. This band has been amongst my favorites for awhile, and it’s not the first time I mention ‘Cloudland canyon’, but every time I get into the mood, I put this album on and it carries me away. And while trying to listen to details while listening, you simply cant, cause it carries you away, and keeps you wondering. If you look at the photo, you could understand how this place can get you that inspired.

Cloudland canyon is the indie sister of Animal Collective. I would say it’s a raw form of the collective. Heavy ambient mayhem. Noise, samples , distorted notes with crazy delays and loops. Headphone madness. Perfect listen in between the South African World cup final. If you are looking for soothing music in the background, well, this is not your band. We love it though, and find it challenging. Out on Intercoastal artists, a new record label located in north America.
