Damnnnnnn goodness is this one!!!!!!!! Cloud, aka Tyler Taormina, has put something phenomenal together with Zen Summer. Personally, I had never heard anything from this artist previously. With Zen Summer, you’ll find similarities to such projects as Panda Bear and/or Toro y Moi — to give you an idea. Blissfully enticing, I listened to this record and got washed away in it.

Paper Trail Records, out of Dublin, Ireland, is handling the vinyl side of this one and damn did they produce a piece of wax that mixes well with the artwork and overall tone of the album. You should definitely give this one a listen down below!

You can also find an interview with Tyler Taormina, courtesy of our friends Matt and Sandy, just below the tunes!


“Astoundingly accomplished.” – Pitchfork


“Glossy dream-pop production with deeply confessional lyrics” – Stereogum


“Reminiscent of Panda Bear or Toro Y Moi, the gentle arrangement is matched to a delicate vocal which hints at something darker”. – Clash Music


“Slow motion melodies stretching to a blissful infinity. Here’s one cloud that won’t spoil your day.” – The Irish Times
