Gospel Sounds & More from the Church of Scientology could be looked at as the Clouds’ second album that never came out.
After releasing their first record in 2010, they worked up a new set of songs, all much more original and “their own sound” compared to their first, but by the time they got into the studio to record with Tim Dunn, they had over 20 tracks. So obviously a lot of them (predominantly the older tracks) didn’t make the sophomore classic “Whereabouts” and instead came out as a European tour cassette that quickly sold through it’s hundred copies and the songs sat idle on Bandcamp from then onwards.
Anti Fade were able to compile a lot of stuff from that time, including the above tour tape, two tracks that never actually came out plus a handful of singles that weren’t included on albums.
It’s ten years or more since all of these songs were recorded, yet they still feel as fresh and relative as anything else that’s coming out today.
