Cloudkicker‘s Ben Sharp is a hell of a guy. He’s always putting out new music for free, and much of the time it’s a surprise when he does it. The latest Cloudkicker EP Hello is no different from this trend, but the music is very much a new ballgame. The EP contains a single 10 minute track, ‘Hello‘, that is much more drone and ambiance-oriented than anything Cloudkicker has done before. The track feels like a fuzzied up Godspeed You! Black Emperor track and cycles through lush chord progressions, and while the more drone-oriented post-rock style may throw many previous fans off, rest assured that the track is absolutely beautiful if you give it its fair share of airtime.
