Theme Song: Cloud Carrier

“Into the Night”

We met Dillon and Emily (aka Cloud Carrier) during our road trip, in Boulder, Colorado. We were so taken with their intense adorability and hilariousness and, once we’d creeped them online and listened to their music, their crazy talent for creating dreamy and danceable music, that we asked them to make this month’s theme song.

Into the Night

      Marian, I’m sorry–what browser are you using? Did you try Chrome or Firefox?

        I’m using safari, Ive tried refreshing the page a few times and it still doesn’t work…

        • Phoebe July 27th, 2012 9:24 PM

          Can you try using a different browser? Sorry for the inconvenience!

    It’s not working for me either. It says the media isn’t valid, or something like that. I’m on Safari.

    Wow. I recently discovered dream pop myself. Will keep watching this group. Can’t wait to hear more of them!

    I’d like to point out that, after reading that New York Times article, I burst into tears because I wasn’t able to attend any Rookie Road Trip events.

    But I’m digging all this attention from the Times towards things like Rookie and Girls Rock ATL.

      I just read it and I totally feel like crying! I’m so bummed that I couldn’t go to any of the events.
      The little video on the article was kinda cool because it had interviews with girls saying the impact that Tavi has on them.
      I’m 16 and I started reading her blog in 7th grade and seriously, Tavi, THANK YOU FOR BEING BORN. you are the best.

    We’re looking into alternative music players for WordPress. This one seems to have too many glitches for you guys every month!
