Cloud Repair // ‘Space Suits’ (LP)
About ‘Space Suits’, LP (2018)
‘Space Suits’, a nine track album with a bonus track at the end, was released January 26, 2018. The recording process was a very fluid, 2 year process, as I threw a microphone up to any amp or instrument I could find whenever an idea came to me; eventually, layers of sound were caked together. One of the fondest memories was putting a microphone in the middle of a sanctuary and recording drone notes of a pipe organ. Another funny memory was spending multiple hours one night singing literally 2 lines from the first verse on ‘Moving Fast, Moving Slow’ over and over and over again–like 100+ takes, no joke–and not using any of them. Recording this album was like the biggest deal in the world to me at the time; I thought Pitchfork was going to write about or I was going to get a grammy or something. It was pretty silly but also kinda beautiful at the same time–I tried so hard.
I think ‘Diamond’ is a very underrated track on the album–the acoustic guitars, breathy vocals, and undulating synths make a really tasteful vibe imo. ‘Mountain Bloom’ is the oldest song in the Cloud Repair catalog, and Kiersten performed the vocals perfectly.
I have one vinyl pressing as a model, and I hope to be able to do a larger scale printing in the future (i’ll post a pic below).
