New Cloud Control Green Room Session & Exclusive Free Download

Cloud Control

Cloud Control exclusive download

Cloud Control just released their second album, Dream Cave (Votiv), last week. From track to track the album gently unfolds like a warm blanket fresh out of the dryer. Well crafted songs at times layered with lush synths and polished vocal hamonies take you from dark and lonely to bright and fuzzy. The songs are big but not overly produced, which makes for easily listening. Cloud Control has a cinematic feel that will definitely find them on many soundtracks to come.  

To help celebrate their new album, the Australian quartet performed an exclusive set for the Amoeba Green Room Sessions series. The stripped down performance was nothing short of stellar and when a band rocks in the green room, you know they've got magic! As a special treat for the fans, Amoeba and Cloud Control are offering an exclusive free download of their song "Dojo Rising" recorded live in the Hollywood green room. Download now.

New Albums Coming from Yeasayer and Bloc Party

Posted by Rachael McGovern, July 18, 2012 05:07pm | Post a Comment
YeasayerYeasayer's third album, Fragrant World, is being released August 21 on Secretly Canadian. On Fragrant World, the band continues to embrace electronic instruments and effects, with hardly any guitar presence. In many ways, it's a progression from the sound of their sophomore album Odd Blood, an album I much prefer over their debut, All Hour Cymbals (as fellow Amoeblogger Billy Gil mentioned in his recent post).

Chris Keating, Ira Wolf-Tuton and Anand Wilder recorded Fragrant World in Brooklyn, (side note: for some reason I have it in my mind that Yeasayer is an Australian band and have to constantly remind myself that they are, in fact, New Yorkers). Keating recently told Under the Radar that he was listening to a lot of R&B while working on the album and "wanted to make a record that was legitimately, to use a bad word, funky." That is music to my booty-shaking ears. He also went on to describe it as "Sci-fi Pam Grier music," which made my booty stop shaking and instead looked a tad quizzical. But my booty and I will hold out final judgment until we can listen to the entire album. So far I've only heard "Henrietta," which offers as a free download (get it here), and "Longevity" (video below), but I love both of those tracks already. And I can kind of see what he meant with the Sci-fi Pam Grier comparison.

VUM at Amoeba HollywoodLos Angeles band VUM has a brand new video for "Savage" from their album, Night Sun (out now on Secret Lodge Recordings) and we have the pleasure of premiering the video! You can also grab "Savage" as a free download on

A former Amoeba Home Grown artist, VUM is Jennifer Pearl (ex-Lion Fever, Lost Kids) and Christopher Badger (Grand Elegance). Directed and conceived by Michael Frost, who has been working with the duo since he fell in love with their first album Strange Attractor, the video features Pearl as a prism-beast radiating different images while Badger guides her through the LA canyons and into some trippy make out action (bodysuits and optical illusion included).

VUM's latest album, Night Sun, was recorded between LA and the South Pacific, where singer/guitarist Pearl was living for a time. The  duo calls their unique sound "cinematic noir," capitalizing on Pearl's deep, powerful vocals, psychedelic guitars, dark wave synths, and thumping Suicide-esque drum machines. Intertwined throughout are field recordings from the jungle.
