OK, I know what you are thinking. There is little to no reason to ever watch Carson Daly
do watered down jokes that Conan thought were kind of funny five years ago. But, you might want to drink a lot (of coffee?) and wait up on June 17th, to check out Cloud Cult
on their late night debut. I promise you won't regret it.
This Minnesota collective has a lot of buzz going for them, most notably a "breaking artist" nod from Rolling Stone
in April, as well as a feature spot on NPR's
"All Things Considered." The band has an eerie brand of indie rock that swoops as much as it grooves, with rich harmonies over outbursts of guitars and keyboards. be the best reason to stick around after Conan we've seen in a long time. Mark your calender. And don't forget to check out the website, complete with streams, some off the new album, Feel Good Ghosts
