Cloud Nothings

Shortly after I left Pitchfork’s SXSW showcase at the Mohawk last night, Cloud Nothings took the outdoor stage to bash out what was, by all accounts, a tough and loud and muscular set. They also took the opportunity to debut an as-yet-untitled new song, which sounds like even more of a cacophony than their Attack On Memory stuff; it devolves into an excellent guitar freakout at the end. It’s enough to make me think I should’ve stuck around, although Japandroids were playing elsewhere at the same time and that’s just never going to be an easy call. Watch a fan-made video below.

There’s some talk of a new Cloud Nothings album before year’s end, which would obviously be super-welcome.

    • Love all of the downvotes, everybody! Especially since it’s on website that chooses to post a rough cut YouTube video for an unnamed Cloud Nothings song that might or might not end up being recorded one day, while the incredible new Dillinger Escape Plan song off their new LP came out yesterday and it’s not been picked up on their radar yet.

      • To be fair you did ask for “a show of hands.”

        • Yeah, but that was when I thought everyone agreed with me — Kind of like how everyone agreed with me last week about how these music sites are driven by online advertising goals to the point where calling it out led to taking #1 on the week’s best comments.

          SO WHICH IS IT, COMMENT SECTION MASSES? CHOOSE A SIDE: TEAM ROGUE UNDERSCORE or TEAM CORPORATE.

  2. no phrase gets me more excited to watch a youtube video than “guitar freakout”
