Something pleasant

"There's So Much Energy in Us" by Cloud Cult-- I apparently had a vague impression that no one was making new, pleasant rock music, but Cloud Cult calls what they're doing experimental indie.

I'm not sure what's experimental about it, I'd call it completely accessible, but this probably just shows how far I am from the music scene.

Link thanks to gwern.

They're taking stuff from post-rock bands like Godspeed You! Black Emperor and reintegrating it into song-based rock.

I love Cloud Cult! I used to have a show on my college radio station, and they were one of the "local bands" I most liked to play. :)

I love Cloud Cult! I have bunches of their music, and one of their songs is like a theme for my novel.

Oh, that is pretty! I love the way the song begins with strange sounds that gradually come together into a musical pattern, and the way the triumphant 4/4 rhythm slowly emerges out of the jagged 8/8 near the end... and the way the lyrics hint at something mystical hiding just behind the words.

There's so much good music out there...
