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.
