Boomkat Product Review:
"Carter Tanton's Freeclouds is arguably the long overdue follow-up to his former band Tulsa's 2007 EP I Was Submerged. Tulssa spent two years writing and recording their follow-up to the EP, but it was never released due to label and legal struggles. Discouraged, the band broke up and Carter focused his energy on his role as a guitar player in Marissa Nadler's band, touring extensively and eventually recording parts for her recently released self-titled record. His experience working on Nadler's record ultimately served as the catalyst that inspired him to record Freeclouds. Many of the tracks written for Freeclouds, and the album's title reference David Bowie's "Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud." Though most of the tracks are more abstract than Bowie's relatively straightforward narrative, Carter's imagery, emotions, and melodies feel like a continuation of the forlorn and tragic atmospheres Bowie created. Despite the fact that he originally intended to keep these songs stripped down and simple, the production grew as Carter explored the possibilities of recording an album in his apartment, eventually incorporating synths, samples, and drum programming. The pristine guitar textures and expertly applied delay are reminiscent of The Return of the Durutti Column, while the overall vibe feels intimate and lived in… not unlike Sparklehorse's Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot."
