If you’re gonna belong to a cult, Cloud Cult seems like a pretty good one to belong to. Oh, but I joke!
Cloud Cult isn’t a REAL cult, it’s actually an indie rock group that records out of a basement studio in a northern Minnesota organic farm. The owner of that farm is none other than Craig Minowa, a member of Cloud Cult and founder of the eco-friendly label, Earthology Records.
Minowa recently told Spinner.com about his new plan to make the music scene a greener industry by replacing the traditional merch table at shows with a digital download center. He said: “We’d be able to sell the album for a greatly reduced price. People could have it right on their iPod, and there’s no ecological footprint.”Minowa has always been somewhat of an eco-pioneer, recalling: “Even my first job at Pizza Hut, I got into trouble trying to get the store to stop using aerosol and start using hand-pump sprays.”
Wanna support a badass group with a badass mission? Cloud Cult will be on the road until May touring most of the U.S. They also plan to release an upcoming CD that culls songs from various Cloud Cult albums, along with some bonus tracks. To find about more visit CloudCult.com!
