Cloud Corner is our look at the best new music sent into us via Soundcloud. The feature now offers the chance to vote for your favourite, with the winner being interviewed about their experiences as an up and coming band in our sister feature 'Lessons From Cloudcorner'. Finding new bands is like gold-mining; everyone can do it and everyone is doing it. The only difference is that I cannot sell new bands and I have the ever useful resource Soundcloud to guide me. As a side note, on average gold-mining costs the lives of 12 people every year whereas to my knowledge no one has died from finding new music. Congratulations to Hidden Pictures, who won last time's Cloud Corner.
Previously Featured Tracks
Justin Soileau ‘A Simple Song’ by Justin Soileau There’s a wise old saying that says that ‘simple songs are the best’. Luckily Justin Soileau’s offering is both simple and flawless – a winning combination. You can visit the Justin by heading to Photobucket Will Samson ‘Meet Me at Home’ by Will Samson Don’t let his nondescript name fool you, Berlin-based Will Samson creates delicate, reverberant folk-music that wouldn’t go amiss on Bon Iver's forthcoming album. You can visit the Will by heading to Photobucket
‘Apocalypse-Surfin' by Revolvers Surfing is something I’ve always wanted to try; while I’ve never contemplated ‘apocalypse surfing’ I can safely say that if it’s as irresistibly catchy as Toronto-based Revolvers then I definitely want to try it out. You can visit the band by heading to Photobucket
NiteFLIGHTS 'Here Comes Tomorrow' by Niteflights London based Niteflights make slick, intelligent music so infectious that it almost overshadows their bad name (Scott Walker reference withstanding). Most importantly, Niteflights reaffirms my dissatisfaction with lackluster English indie bands of late. You can visit the band by heading to Photobucket
TheRubbishZoo ‘More Ink Than An Octopus’ by The Rubbish Zoo While I’ve personally never encountered a rubbish Zoo, I’ve rarely met a band as enjoyable and catchy as LA-based The Rubbish Zoo. You can visit the band by heading to Photobucket
