Their 1st release, from 2013.

"Dada-minded insurrectionists hellbent on dismantling various genres then re-assembling them inside out with gleeful aplomb."-The Village Voice

"...I can safely call Cloud Becomes Your Hand one of the most exciting and wonderfully strange bands I've encountered in some time."-Stereogum, "Band To Watch"

"With brilliant melodies, blippy video-game sounds, and Syd Barrett-esque lyrics, Cloud Becomes Your Hand feels like a joyful journey through a strange land."-The New Yorker

"Cloud Becomes Your Hand’s proper full-length debut, Rocks Or Cakes, thrills, buzzes, dives, surprises, effortlessly manages the task of being complex and light-handed simultaneously, bursts into prog-fusion star-shapes (“Bees Going Postal”), bends into unexpected circus counterpoints and toy piano tangents (“Bay Shamps”), features a song about a sevenheaded underwater creature that is ridiculous in all the best ways without being silly (“Sand of Sea”), challenges without being obnoxious, plays without being wasteful, dances like aliens are watching, sounds like a run-on interior monologue careening around the head of a benevolent eccentric group mind, is filled with colorful and imaginative passages, makes operatic Harry Partch-like speak-singing Beatles-y and pleasing (“Nuclei Spinoffs”), and is one of the most unique albums you will or won’t hear this year."-Relix
