CLOUDY OCTOBER / The Aviator Is Dead 
Coming out of Portland, Oregon is hip-hop newcomver Cloudy October and his 2010 debut EP The Aviator Is Dead.
A clever little sampler of what was to come a year later on his full-length The Metal Jerk. Cloudy inserts bitterly funny, yet witty lyrics over goofy sounding beats met with haunting string scales and dense walls of samples. His lyrical flow is near perfect and the quality of lyrics never resorts to silliness or cheap cop-out rhymes. Definitely one to watch because if this is just the beginning, then it's bound to get better and better.
