More Info:

In 2003, The Coleman Center, an Alabama non-profit arts organization, welcomed Stuart Hyatt as an artist-musician in residence. The center, which encourages and supports projects that engage and reflect the unique surrounding community, invited Hyatt to explore local music.Four weeks later, he emerged with The Clouds.Hyatt, reckoning with the notion of mortality, had written and recorded songs with a variety of local citizens, social groups, and schoolchildren.The result is a record that is plainly, if not stylistically, Americana - a patchwork of voices sown together by some simple songs about the one thing we all experience.The original release was super DIY - Hyatt's grandparents helped him assemble the packaging, which also somehow managed to score a Grammy nomination in the category. A copy of the CD somehow wound up in the DFA offices, where it was shared and beloved but still sat until 2020, when we decided it may finally be worth trying to re-release on vinyl.That process took two years and an insane attention to detail, but the final product is part and parcel with the original project - a unique document of a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration.
