Cloudkicker Streams New Album Solitude Ahead of Its Planned Release

0

Cloudkicker’s new album, Solitude, wasn’t scheduled to arrive until September 8, with one single, “Ludendorffbrücke,” having been unveiled so far. But the band’s mastermind / onlyman / multi-instrumentalist, Ben Sharp, has decided to make it available for streaming in full today, September 4. Huzzah!

The catch is that it’s only on Bandcamp — perhaps in solidarity with the monthly “Bandcamp Friday” event that sees artist fees waived by the service to help with rough times brought on by the pandemic — with the album coming to other streaming services on September 8 as previously planned.

I’m just now hearing this album for the first time along with you, but my quick take based on the first two songs is that this is a dirtier, gnarlier version of Cloudkicker than we’ve heard before. And I am here for it! I’ll take artistic progression over the same old same old any damn day.

Stream Solitude below and buy it here.
