Cloudy October "The Aviator is Dead EP"

Expanding the Backpack, 6/8/11

Late-pass on this one, but just learned about this guy's music recently and wanted to share this free EP of his for those who haven't heard it. Cloudy October is an MC/producer from Portland, OR that makes rap music that he describes as "Andre' from Outkast meets Aesop Rock in Molecular Science Class." The beats and rhymes on this EP are surprisingly great, with Cloudy October's flow fitting well over his polished organ and harp-based production. This guy was recently signed to the Chicago-based instrumental hip hop label Fieldwerk Records, who already have a rep for great releases and who'll be putting out Cloudy's new one "The Metal Jerk" in the Fall. Cloudy October is currently touring across the West coast with Onry Ozzborn, Iame, and Void Pedal as part of the "Hold on for Dear Life" tour. Stream "The Aviator is Dead" below or download it for free here, plus peep the music video and tour dates lower down while you're at it:
