Not A Sky In The Cloud

And How is back with another record, the project's second full-length release so far in 2015. And for a follow-up to the career best The Twisted Trees--well, the new one is damn good to be the second damn good record And How has released this year.

Not A Sky In The Cloud sounds like a lost gem from the mid-90's alternative scene. You know, that oft-forgotten moment when we all pretended that Nirvana was just a state of being, and our record collections contained (records, for one thing!) plenty of Beatles, Crowded House, Mazzy Star, and Cheap Trick. The sound here is lo-fi but polished; the songs are straightforward but carefully crafted; and the price is exceedingly free. If you can carve out 3 minutes of your life for a good pop song, you'll be the better for it.
