    Default Cloud Cult

    Cloud Cult will be on Last Call with Carson Daly tomorrow night (Thursday). They'll be doing one painting, and auctioning it off on eBay over the weekend.

    There was an article in the Wall Street Journal about them last month. It even included a video that's kind of interesting. It gives you a sense of how much you need to bid for one of the paintings at the end of the show.

    WSJ link: http://online.wsj.com/public/article..._20080608.html

    Here's a link to the video (which I cannot find on youtube):

    I only wish they'd come up my way.

    Love it. I've listened to their albums and enjoyed them but other than that I didn't know anything about the bands history before reading that article.

    (Well, part of it anyway.)

    Here's the eBay page for the painting:

    Currently only one bid for $200!

    Didn't they do a shitty E-surance commercial?

    They were apparently in a shitty commercial. I never saw it, but I've recently heard this criticism when I've told people I'm all about them.

    Apparently they felt the company had something in line with their ecological beliefs? I don't know - I don't know the song that was in the commercial. But I feel bad for them over it. They're surprisingly good. They screwed themselves with a cheesy song in a hated commercial. They messed up their "rep" anyway - and for many people, that's more important than the music they produce.

    Thanks to Tessa, I'm recently all about them. It's good stuff.

    they have about 8 albums, and unfortunately the only thing so many people know about them is one song in a commercial...absolutely great band regardless

    You've recommended an album, how about recommending some songs?
