Watch Cloud Nothings’ New Album Teaser

"It starts right now" are the only words we hear in the new album teaser video Cloud Nothings just posted, but the music therein speaks volumes. Dylan Baldi and his bros have an LP on the way in 2014, the follow-up to the Cleveland combo's jagged-edged, Steve-Albini-Scrabbled 2012 breakthrough Attack On Memory, and from… More »

Watch Cloud Nothings’ Dylan Baldi Play New Song “Psychic Trauma” Acoustic In Vienna

Last year, Cloud Nothings released Attack On Memory, one of the year's best and rawest straight-up indie rock records. But during a recent visit to Vienna, Austria, frontman Dylan Baldi presented a new song in a decidedly different way: Playing it acoustic on the sidewalk of an outdoor square. The song has the working… More »

Watch Cloud Nothings Play A New Song At SXSW

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 More »

Cloud Nothings Announce New Album

Cloud Nothings are working on a follow-up to this year's explosive Attack On Memory, as reported by MTV Hive. Frontman Dylan Baldi says the record will be "noisier" and "less straightforward," which sounds like he's taking a note from Memory's engineer Steve Albini. No word if Albini will be involved in the project, but… More »

Report & Photos From FYF Fest 2012

Ever since I was old enough to complain, my dad took great pleasure in the act of dragging my always-resistant ass to music festivals. A summer full of glorious music for him meant a summer full of unstifled groans from me. His taste in music back then -- folk, folk, and nothing but folk --… More »

Read Fiction From Twin Shadow: “The Night Of The Silver Sun”

Twin Shadow's awesome, biker-gang-related video for "Five Seconds" is based on fiction that George Lewis, Jr. himself wrote called The Night Of The Silver Sun. Recently, the first two parts of the novel surfaced on the web, via Eliot Aronow. Here's what it's like:… More »

Pitchfork Festival 2012: Grimes, Danny Brown, Sleigh Bells & More

At ginormous festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, it's pretty tough to craft a narrative -- when there's something like 200 bands playing over a weekend, it's next to impossible to really sew a singular thread through the weekend's performances. Pitchfork Music Festival is much smaller -- 45 bands in three days -- so, it's a… More »

Watch Cloud Nothings On Fallon

In the past few weeks, we've heard a few albums that could conceivably top our best-of-2012 list at the end of the year. When we published our half-year list, though, we had a clear #1: Attack On Memory, an impressive hunk of '90s-indie revelry from Cloud Nothings. And last night, the band made… More »

Chomp – “Throw Out Your Wish List”

Joe Boyer and Jayson Gerycz, two members of Cloud Nothings, have a new side project called Chomp that also features Total Babes member Chris Brown (not that one). And "Throw Out Your Wish List," their new song, goes the Cloud Nothings route of traveling through the more discordant edges of '90s indie, albeit with a… More »

Cloud Nothings – “Cut You (Co La Remix)”

Co La is the side project of Ecstatic Sunshine’s Matthew Papich, and through this guise he creates style-shifting instrumentals that touch on jazz, electronic pop and rap. He recently reworked Cloud Nothing's Attack On Memory closer "Cut You," dissecting and reassembling the track into a vibrant, dubby collage. Watch it below. More »

Check Out Steve Albini’s Great Reddit Q&A

Steve Albini recently summoned the stones to do a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), where he discussed some of his most famous career moments as well as poker, pizza, Nirvana, what Joanna Newsom smells like, and that Cloud Nothings session where he allegedly played online Scrabble the whole time.

Download Cloud Nothings Live @ The Grog Shop

Earlier this month, the Cloud Nothings played a homecoming show at Cleveland's Grog Shop, and today the group's giving away a short live recording featuring five tracks from that performance.

Cloud Nothings – “Stay Useless” Video

Cloud Nothings' video for Attack On Memory standout "Stay Useless" is an animated clip that's a lot like a severely fucked up version of Magic School Bus and also kind of like that Simpsons episode "Das Bus." So, you can't go wrong! Watch it below. More »
