Cracking the code
Post-rock instrumentalists Codes in the Clouds have been doing some blue-sky thinking. And acting on it.
Their new album is a remix by fans - and they're donating all profits to Friends of the Earth. The release is available only from fairsharemusic until 25 October.
Fairsharemusic gives half its profits to Friends of the Earth. So if you buy new album Paper Canyon Recycled from fairsharemusic you'll be donating to us twice - at no extra cost to you.
We caught up with Codes in the Clouds guitarist Stephen Peeling and bassist Joe Power to say a big thank you. And to ask them to solve the code for us.
Why Codes in the Clouds?
"The name is to do with the music being instrumental and the idea of finding a message that isn't immediately readable.
"If something like cloud patterns could inspire you to read anything you wanted into it, hopefully you can do the same with the music."
Thoughts on the environment?
They've applied the idea of recycling to a record.
The band offered previous album Paper Canyon to all fans and artists to re-interpret.
"We've recycled our music and artwork. That got us thinking about recycling and the environment."
The environment is our biggest concern.
Why Friends of the Earth?
"We want to take a considered and practical approach to the problem. And Friends of the Earth, better than anyone else, does that.
"The three main things that Friends of the Earth stands for framed how we felt, perfectly."
Listen, enjoy and support
