Dylan Baldi of the band Cloud Nothings must be thrilled to be no longer residing in his parent's basement. Because this time last year, that is exactly where he and his fellow members were stuck recording and rehearsing. Now signed to Carpark records and with the release of their newest album 'Attack On Memory' the guys are hitting the road for some much needed [leg-stretching] tours. The album was produced by Steve Albini, who helped create albums for big names like Nirvana, Cheap Trick, Pixies, and PJ Harvey. In fact, you can hear a bit of rough Cobain riffs in the album.
Influenced by retro punk and sounding a lot like The Vines, Cloud Nothings might seem like a misleading name, but it shouldn't detract from the gruff and lo-fi power they keep putting out.
Judge for yourself if the hype is worth it. Album is out today.
