Cloudkicker is a post-rock/metal project run by Ben Sharp. He records and produces all of his work without a record deal, and says that he does not plan on ever signing one. All of the project’s music is available here, pay-what-you-want style. This album has lots of great guitar riffs, similar in a way to Pelican, and a surprising amount of interesting drum passages considering he just uses a drum machine, although they do get a little too electronic and ambient for my tastes at times. I think this project is a good example of why people shouldn’t worry about the music “industry” because there’s more out there in the world of music than just that “industry”.
