To celebrate their 16th birthday, Carpark Records will press a limited-edition 12" compilation of unreleased tracks by members of their roster.

It's been a while since we've last heard from Ohio punk quartet Total Babes.

The 50 Best Albums Of 2014

Music is a messy thing. There's too much of it, too many genres, too many ideas, for anyone to make sense out of all of it -- or even to hear all of it. The idea of imposing a narrative on 365 days of music, of making sense of a whole year, is a fool'… More »

Cloud Nothings – “Giving Into Seeing (Outer Space Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

In his review of Cloud Nothings' Here And Nowhere Else, Tom described Jason Gerycz's drumming as the very best part of the already excellent album. "The songs are good on their own, but Gerycz's playing effectively straps a rocket to them," wrote Tom. If that's the case, then the band couldn't have picked a… More »

The 10 Best Sets At Bonnaroo 2014

It has to be a toss-up between Coachella and Bonnaroo as to which is our most iconic currently active American festival.

Album Of The Week: Cloud Nothings Here And Nowhere Else

Listen to the god damn drums. There's a lot to like about Here And Nowhere Else, the new Cloud Nothings album: The snot-punk hooks, the scraped-out guitar textures, the overwhelming refusal to acknowledge any musical influences from anytime after, say, 1997. But those drums are the best thing about Here And Nowhere Else. Cloud Nothing… More »

Stream Cloud Nothings Here And Nowhere Else

A little more than two years ago, the Cleveland-born band Cloud Nothings turned their attention toward scraping, discordant, fearsome late-'80s underground rock on their album Attack On Memory, and the results absolutely ruled. Next week, they follow it up with their new LP Here And Nowhere Else. It's the band's first LP since slimming… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

The music gods were really kind this week. We had maybe a dozen legit songs in contention for this week's 5 Best, and and when we finally narrowed it down five, we could barely even find a way to rank them, because any of them would have been a worthy choice for No. 1. Heck,… More »

Cloud Nothings – “Psychic Trauma”

Cloud Nothings are set to follow up their triumphant 2012 album Attack On Memory with the new one Here And Nowhere Else, and first single "I'm Not A Part Of Me" was an absolute ripper.

Hear Cloud Nothings Debut Their New Album In Brooklyn

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… More »
