For some unknown reason I had a new album by Cloud Cult (Feel Good Ghosts (Tea-Partying Through Tornadoes)) which I resisted to hear for about 2 years because I thought it was Coldcut! I didn't hear Coldcut very much either to be honest, because the little I heard I didn't like a lot.

Well, it turns out from time to time I like to hear my music collection in random order, and I was impressed by a song by Cloud Cult (and I still thought it was Coldcut until I started writing this post =P).

So I'm hearing the complete album and is plain genius, I'll have to check out their other albums soon.

The band have some very nice curiosities too. From Last.fm:

The band’s founder and singer Craig Minowa has a degree in Environmental Science, and his environmental, political, and social awareness is reflected in much of Cloud Cult’s music.

From Wikipedia:

In 1997, lead singer Craig Minowa formed Earthology Records on his organic farm, powered by geothermal energy and built partially from reclaimed wood and recycled plastic. This nonprofit label uses only recycled materials and donates all profits to environmental charities. The band also tours in a biodiesel van.
