Cloud Cover’s self-titled tape has a vibe akin to the early Family Time lo-fi/bedroom pop releases that established our name. Here that energy has been bottled up and distilled to a more minimal base that bolsters Jenny Tuite’s concise and direct emotional engagement with her unique, patient artistic approach. The fidelity paves way for some great vocals/lyrics that recall “Moon Pix”-era Cat Power in its humble intensity and ability to be emotionally present.
New tapes coming out next week from Mothers of Gut and Cloud Cover. Hitting both ends of the modern pop spectrum, lo-fi bedroom pop to concise angsty prog. Both groups from LA. Both are rad! New tapes and digital available next Tuesday!!!!11

Blending elements of shoegaze and exp. rock through their own DIY wall-of-sound approach the band swells from total dissonance to airy hooks, relenting only at the tape’s end demonstrating their total sonic control. Through their relentless touring and consistent release schedule Crisis Arm are carving their way, converting people in every town that they stop in. Don’t sleep on this tape; it’s a heady indicator of a band becoming.
