I am not usually an early adopter–of technology, of fashion, of music, of . . . well, you get the idea.
But when I finally do check out a new (to me) band or TV show or style of yogurt, I am all in.
It was probably four years ago that several of my friends mentioned this Minnesota band called Cloud Cult. But I didn’t listen.
It was probably three years ago that I saw a newspaper article about the same band. I read it, and was intrigued, but still . . . I didn’t listen.
It was about a month ago that I happened to turn on NPR on my way home from dropping off the babysitter. I was instantly drawn into the story of Krista Tippett’s guest, even though Krista Tippett herself drives me up the wall. (Pro Tip: I know. I know.) I loved the music, too.
Well, spoiler alert: the guest was Craig Minowa and the music was his band, Cloud Cult.
Check out the interview that did it for me here.
I have been loving Cloud Cult on many Monday mornings (and Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday mornings) ever since. You can check out most of their stuff on Spotify. Here are a few of my favorites:
