Last night, Studio 360's episode "Creative Minds Go Green" featured a re-broadcast of an April segment on green musicians. Minnesota's Cloud Cult was included, with lead singer Craig Minowa (an environmental scientist with the Organic Consumers Association by day) discussing the band's corn-based CD shrink-wrap and efforts to reduce the tour's carbon footprint. Best line: "We go back to the hotel room and figure out how much green-energy credits we have to do instead of figuring out how many lines we're going to snort... It's pretty boring."
Listen to it.
