Cloudkicker - Little Histories [Instrumental/Metal]

A humble addition to Ben Sharp's stellar discography...
Cloudkicker is the monkier of multi-instrumentalist Ben Sharp, an outstanding musician who's growth over the years since beginning the Cloudkicker project is matched by his eye for stellar composition incorporating the best of modern metal and post rock. Little Histories, Sharp's latest, only continues to showcase his outstanding talent in a solid and diverse collection of tracks filled with the catchy riffs and hooks of metal and the dramatic scores and sweeping atmospheric melodies of post-rock. 

Chameleon and Digital Lighting come forth as the shining light in Little Histories; Chameleons calm and slow melodies that lead into an earth-shaking outro is a satisfying and captivating track and Digital Lightning's hard hitting energetic grooves and textures are awe-inspiring to say the least. The rest of the tracks, while shorter, do provide some good atmosphere building and are calming to listen to, which overall makes Little Histories an excellent addition to Sharp's already versatile and impressive discography.

You can stream, download, or buy Little Histories here. If you like what you hear, consider supporting Ben Sharp by purchasing a physical copy of Little Histories (which comes with a few bonus tracks) or by throwing a few coins his way. You can also share this album with your friends, because they need some sweet, sweet instrumental rock in their library. Just remember, a little support and a little word of mouth goes a long way! <3
