Cloudkicker's been on my radar ever since 2010's Beacons, but I'll admit that I didn't give that release much attention. And then last year's Let Yourself Be Huge came out and I paid little mind once again. My mistake. But after repeated listens of the recently released Fade, I know it's time to revisit Ben Sharp's previous works. Instrumental rock can be hard to pull off, but, like Explosions in the Sky and Russian Circles, Cloudkicker is on the right track. You can check out Sharp's discography at his bandcamp page, where all of the digital releases are available at a "name your price" option.
