Gavin Hellyer Just a glorious collection of great songs. Favorite track: A Light Wish Weights A Lot.

Juju Sophie If I was American and making music in America with a group of friends, this is exactly what I would like my band to sound like. And i mean friends and not backing singers. This is what helps make the record sound so personal to the writer, a young dude called Tyler. The vocals are cool, easy sounding and the lyrics command that you listen without shouting at the listener or leaning on an emotionally blackmailing cry of despair. I like it. What can I say? Bloody impressive and beautiful. Favorite track: Wish Little Fish.

Ben Walker An honest collection of lo-fi but lush-sounding recordings, instantly comforting. Haven't decided on a favourite track yet...

YES! LA's (via Boston via NY) debuts with a gorgeous 11-track LP on Audio Antihero. Our first full length album since Benjamin Shaw's 2011 corker and only our third ever.

I'm proud of it. It's beautiful. I'm not even smart enough to describe it. But I think you guys will really, really like this record. We've only pressed 140 copies (+ now available on cassette) and they look beautiful.


"Astoundingly accomplished." - Pitchfork

"Cloud know their way around a pop song, and for all of the album's off-beat charms, and occasionally hard-to-grasp content, it's a true pop heart which can be found at the centre of every song that helps to make this such a rewarding listen - 8/10." - Drowned In Sound

"A great record." - Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6 Music)

"Comfort Songs holds a strong claim as one of best albums under the ill-defined umbrella of 'indie-rock' that has been released in the last
decade or so - 10/10." - Contact Music

"Great!" - Eric Lawrence (KCRW)

"Emerging 21 year old singer/producer Cloud forges a rich, heartening sound around a passionate vocal, dressing his narratives in shimmering instrumentation, like Conor Oberst in the throes of an obsession with psychedelia." - Rough Trade & The Guardian

"Excellent." - Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)

"Immediately one of my favourite albums of the year." - Sonic Reverie

"I love this..." - Simon Raymonde (Amazing Radio/Bella Union)

"Mainman Tyler Taormina veers through emotions and narratives over the convention-blurring full-length, crooning of love and life and fear and anger over a stunning backdrop of fuzzy guitars, shuffling rhythms and clarion brass. It's a record sodden with heavyweight feeling that gets you right inside the inner machinations of a troubled soul; it's simultaneously heartbreaking and fascinating." - Bearded Magazine

"A very strong debut." - 7BitArcade

"What starts out promising to be a short and sweet alt-rock number, expands out into a captivating instrumental which ebbs and sure to check out the record - 8/10." - Shout 4 Music

"A bewildering treat - 8.5/10." - Crackle Feedback

"Deserves to be a huge indie hit." - Yankie Music

"In Comfort Songs I find a time for reflection, a confirmation of life and its wonder, and a sense of belonging – to whom, I’m not certain, but to someone. And I know, years down the road, this will remain a landmark album for me, with just the same resonant power. Hopefully, dear reader, you’ll be moved, too." - GoldFlakePaint
