The first thing I thought of when I heard “Cloudy Shoes” was Band Of Horses’s “Factory.” “Cloudy Shoes” feels more spiritual though. Maybe it’s the echoing hand claps, or maybe the way he repeats each line back to himself. Richard Swift produced Saint Bartlett, giving this song, and especially the previously-posted “Arkansas,” a larger, already-lived-in feel.
