Craig Minowa of Cloud Cult is our guest on this spiritually charged episode of Sock Monkey Sound. Cloud Cult is an experimental chamber rock band from the midwest who have maintained a decade and a half career by remaining completely independent. They've sold more than 100,000 albums via their own label, Earthology Records, which was created by singer/songwriter Craig Minowa. Their 2013 album "Love" landed on the Billboard Top 50 and resulted in sold out shows across the country.
