Music compilation projects don't usually blow our skirts up. While the local-scene types are always kind of fun, they also tend to suck. Production value is not the point, and bands don't want to give up the good songs they (understandably) put on their own records. You can see where this is going: This comp is different. The In A Cloud organizers at Secret Seven Records found a hot little pocket of extremely talented local musicians who have nice juicy previously unreleased material to contribute. The lineup: Thee Oh Sees, Sonny & the Sunsets, the Fresh & Onlys, Hannah & Raven (of Grass Widow), Jacques Butters, Ty Segall, the Sandwitches, Exrays, Donovan Quinn & the 13th Month, Trainwreck Riders, Dylan Shearer, Paula Frazer, Tim Cohen, and Kelley Stoltz. Tonight's show features Cohen, Stoltz, John Bernson of Exray's, and Sonny Smith.
