Cloud at Building 16 (Providence)

Hello friends!  We are very excited to be having Cloud Becomes Your Hand perform in our studio this coming Thursday, April 3rd.  Check them out locally via 89.3FM or worldwide right here on wnur.org at 6pm!  They just released “Rocks or Cakes” this February, their first record on Northern Spy.  They’ll be playing in Chicago on Friday, April 4th at 9pm at Situations at 2202 N. Milwaukee Ave. Here’s what they have to say about them:

The spirit of discovery has made heroes of mountain climbers and deep sea divers. We rally around it with undaunted belief that one day aliens will be our best friends, if we can just push deep enough into space. Cloud Becomes Your Hand reminds us that this magic of new worlds isn’t just on the edges of civilization; it is all around us. Like a children’s show on PBS, depicting urban life with a frenetic jazz of togetherness and purpose, theirs is the sound of exploring your own city. It is the sound of meeting all the surprising people around you. Surrealism, Dada, psychedelia; these are just fancy words to describe the simple thing this group has done. They’ve collected a bunch of exciting sounds and tied them together with the exclamation, “We’re all here, living these wild lives with each other!”  It is a sentiment explaining the joy and wonder in a child’s eyes. A sentiment Cloud Becomes Your Hand reminds us is for everyone, forever.
