Cloudkicker - The Discovery/The Map is Not the Territory

Cloudkicker is Ben Sharp. His releases are free to download from his site. Get them both!:
"It costs me absolutely nothing to create the music. Zero dollars. I record all the guitars and bass straight into my laptop and program the drums using this one sequencing program, then I mix and master everything myself. The only thing that costs money are guitar strings, but I have a full-time job so it’s no big deal. If you paid money for this you're a sucker. Headphones or very loud speakers are required, drugs are optional."
