I'm an Unashamed Cloud Nothings Fan

  • Cloud Nothings - S/T LP (Wichita/Carpark) [MySpace]
  • Cloud Nothings
    Cloud Nothings -
    Download here
    • Released today in the UK and tomorrow here in the U.S.A.
    • Fantastic noise pop/punk that could also fall in the power-pop category. Great hang-out, feel-good songs with catchy melodies and infectious, grinding noise.
    • I met leader Dylan Baldi here in Columbus very recently. He's a really nice kid and very talented. I'll be able to say "I met him when..." when he makes it big in a few years.
    • He played all the instruments on this album. Very well, too. And his voice is fun to listen to.
    • This is CN's first full-length, the follow-up to their Turning On EP released in the fall.
    • I played their tune "Should Have" on the latest episode of the 8-Tracks Fierce radio show, and today there's a video for that song on Pitchfork. It's funny and gross.
    • The new album is streaming here for free. You should definitely check it out if you haven't heard it yet. And be sure to catch them on tour if you can; their live act blew me away.

This video will give you a taste for their live sound. This was in their hometown of Cleveland last month. This is the second song on the new album.
