"We embrace the dawning of our future," sings Jason Morris without irony and in a manner that recalls Damien Rice on "The Welcoming," the nuclear winter opening to Clouds Are Ghosts' five-song EP. His utter sincerity is the saving grace of the sextet's future-perfect trip-rock – New Order meets New Age. Clean though not sterile, TCAG hits the mark on anthemic standout "Beacon."
