This edition of Cloud Corner aims to prove that the 405 is a truly worldwide affair; today's CC features five artists from five different countries. As ever, Cloud Corner is our look at the best music sent into us via Soundcloud. The feature now offers the chance to vote for your favourite, with the winner getting interviewed by us. Congratulations to Le Fever, who managed to win the last vote (by one vote!). Photobucket ’Chinese Shirts’ by The Wild Complete If living in California is as promising as the music created there, then it must be pretty special. The Wild Complete is the perfect example of intelligent, fun Californian indie-pop. You can visit the band by heading to http://www.myspace.com/wildcomplete
Photobucket 'Sugovica Surfers' by Zombie Girlfriend What’s your first thought when you picture Hungary? I’m pretty confident in saying that it wouldn’t be reverberant lo-fi pop music. Yet Baja resident ‘Zombie Girlfriend' prove that Hungary should be a hub for melodious, reverb-drenched music. You can visit the band by heading to http://zombiegirlfriend.bandcamp.com
Photobucket 'Ten Thousand Birds' by Outside the Museum I am jealous of the man behind the pseudonym Outside the Museum. Not only does Benjamin Catt sell books in Paris for a living, but he has time to make fantastic lo-fi acoustic music on little more than a four-track and a cheap guitar. You can visit the band by heading to http://outsidethemuseum.blogspot.com
Photobucket 'I Can Feel His Heartbeats' by A Genuine Freakshow Aside from being a more appropriate name for Big Brother, A Genuine Freakshow are a band whose abundance of instruments is outnumbered only the amount of genres they reference. You can visit the band by heading to www.agenuinefreakshow.com
Photobucket 'Brother' by Hail! The Planes I must admit, I wasn’t aware of the post-folk genre, but after hearing Hail! The Planes, I can definitely put myself down as a fan. N.B I’ve also never knowingly been a fan of a band from Cardiff before... You can visit the band by heading to http://www.hailtheplanes.bandcamp.com/
Photobucket You get one vote per day and the winner will be interviewed by The 405.
