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 was. 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 title… 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 AttackMore »

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.

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 »

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 their first-ever… 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).

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 »
