Blood on the Clouds (2007)

By The Figments

About Blood on the Clouds

Recorded and mixed by David Shuman in a Connecticut farmhouse, the songs are about war, empire, destruction, and nihilism, but on a personal level. In many of the songs the voice of Big Brother has been completely internalized. At the same time, we hope to present moments of joy and revelation, while giving a fair shout-out to at least the hope of justice.
