Two years ago, Cloud Nothings made their big leap forward, releasing their viscerally satisfying Steve Albini-produced monster-rock album Attack On Memory. We already knew that the band was planning to follow that album up this year — they posted a short teaser video last month — but we didn’t know how far along it was. But last night, the band — who have a new power-trio lineup — played a show at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right, and they took the opportunity to play the entire new as-yet-untitled LP in full, only getting to a couple of Attack On Memory tracks once it was done. We sent BJ Enright to take some photos (check ‘em out above), and Consequence Of Sound managed to record the whole thing. Hear the entire 45-minute show below.
Look forward to hearing studio versions of these songs sometime soon.
