Weaving surreality with sincerity, the music of Chicago-based Lucky Cloud is a dream-trip through realms of love and heartbreak, societal paranoia, and a cosmic search for meaning. Freewheeling through a landscape marked by the wide-open spaces of country, intimate lyricism of folk-rock, and an unusual harmonic adventurousness, the band embraces irony and stylistic extremes while grasping for the sublime.   Lucky Cloud began as the songwriting alias of Austin-born, Chicago-raised musician Chet Zenor. Known for his diverse work as a guitarist, he has been a part of Chicago’s burgeoning songwriting scene (playing with the likes of Max Subar, Minor Moon, Sarah Weddle, Waltzer, Henry True, Lyn Rye, and others) and currently co-leads the avant-country/jazz outfit Alta Vista. While recording a not-yet-released LP in 2020, Lucky Cloud was fleshed out to include close friends and frequent collaborators Max Subar on pedal steel and electric guitar, Jason Ashworth on bass, and Spencer Tweedy on drums. 

 

Sleepy Gaucho follows in the great American artistic tradition that is the rambler’s drawl. His Panamerican influenced folk music offers up a cocktail of wry existentialism and mellow introspection that floats somewhat aimlessly in a realm of its own. Born in Wisconsin while also growing up some time in Argentina, the young multi-instrumentalist’s music can at times be melancholic, at others ethereal, but always agreeable.   Since returning to his hometown of Milwaukee, he began the creative process for the two latest recording projects. For his sophomore record “Morning Light” he strayed away from the first record’s approach, recruiting the likes of veterans such as Patrick Sansone of Wilco and fellow talent ranging from local friends and Nashville session musicians, which releaed via Milwaukee based Hear Here Records in the middle of 2020.   “Sueños que Sobran” (“Leftover dreams” in English), is the latest release, and finds itself being a smooth fusion of sound and language, both English and Spanish, and is to be enjoyed by both languages and their cultures. The EP is out now via French label Nice Guys.

 

Heartbreakingly angelic, with a medium amount of edge, chicago-country-indie-rock lovingly performed by Alayne May and her friends.
