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 Green Room Session with Keaton Henson

Keaton Henson

You may not know that Keaton Henson, a 24-year old London-based singer/songwriter and illustrator, often suffers from a serious case of stage fright. He rarely plays live as a result of his fear. In fact, his intense yearning for privacy almost prevented his music from being released to the public. We are honored to announce an exclusive live performance by Mr. Henson as part of our Green Room Session series. Watch him perform songs from his latest album, Birthdays, as well as "You Don't Know How Lucky You Are" from his debut release, Dear, in the Amoeba Hollywood green room.

Birthdays Henson coverPicking up right where Dear left off, with Henson's signature acoustic melancholy sweetness, Birthdays opens to the sound of ambient clanking and background footsteps that quickly set the tone for what's to come. Over gently plucked guitar chords Henson sings, "by all means give me lessons in my ways, but damn it don't expect me to change."  Expect more of the same from Henson (which is a good thing) and also expect to be surprised! The second half of Birthdays steps up production style to incorporate tightly produced drums with distorted guitars giving Henson's songs a bigger, more fuller sound. It's a nice build to the overall flow of the album and really showcases Henson's capabilities as a songwriter and musician.
