Cloud Seeder: The Sea of Alexander Von Humboldt (album review by Christa V.)

Cloud Seeder is a band with a fascinating sound, their songs are almost ambient music, but featuring the guitar instrumentally. It would be really cool music to talk over while making announcements. The best tracks on this album are the ones where they do just that: both the opening and the closing track features found sounds of someone speaking, as well as track 8. It adds an extra element to their music, and a direction for the ambiance to go in. Many of the other tracks sound very cool even without the vocals, such as “C-Beams Glitter in the Dark” which is more uptempo and groovy, or “The Absence of Small Fish” which has some sick guitar playing. Favorite tracks: 1, 8, 11
