Cloud Nothings – “Leave You Forever”

Our introduction to Cloud Nothings came via the snotty lo-fi pop of “Hey Cool Kid” and “Can’t Stay Awake,” a fuzzy bedroom anthem that reminded (and still reminds) me of Lync. After that, Cleveland’s Dylan Baldi continued delivering great songs that teased-out both (and other) directions. Here’s another, “Leave Your Forever,” from the forthcoming True… More »

Cruel Summer: Stereogum Summer Jams 2010

Welcome to summer, welcome to free and legally downloadable summer jams. Time to CELEBRATE on ROOFTOPS. But you know, oil spills. And crazy people waiting in lines for phones for hours. And poorly officiated soccer games. The world’s topsy turvy, and so then is this mix, to reflect its time and place. It’s America’s weekend,… More »

Cloud Nothings – “Didn’t You” (Stereogum Premiere)

I learned a couple of interesting facts about Cloud Nothings recently. One, when forced with the decision either to play Market Hotel with Woods and Real Estate (aka his first show ever) or drop out of college, Dylan Baldi ditched his mandatory school project and did it up in Bushwick. Power move. And as a… More »

Cloud Nothings – “Even If It Worked Out”

Cleveland’s Dylan Baldi aka Cloud Nothings is chasing his worthy lo-fi eight-track debut Turning On with a summer 7″ “Didn’t You” b/w “Even If It Worked Out.” It’s the b-side that’s getting worked out on the blog circuit today, though one pass through its super hook and bratty rebuff (“I’m sorry we can’t be friend… More »

New Cloud Nothings – “Old Street”

Before diving into Cloud Nothing’s Turning On, I’d heard the odds and ends Cleveland’s Dylan Baldi posted: The immediately hooked “Hey Cool Kid” with its half-asleep sarcasm, the more caffeinated “Can’t Stay Awake,” which reminded me of a more twee/less punk Lync, and the whistling toe-tap of “Whaddya Wanna Know.” Listening to Turning On from… More »

New Cloud Nothings – “Can’t Stay Awake”

When we posted Cloud Nothing’s gently snotty lo-fi anthem “Hey Cool Kid” I should’ve mentioned Lync, who I often hear in bands like No Age, Japandroids, to a lesser degree Wavves, etc. It’s harder to discern in that one. Things are clarified in “Can’t Stay Awake,” a great song from the Cleveland, Ohian’s eight-song debut… More »

New Cloud Nothings – “Hey Cool Kid”

Maybe we’re not ready to call it a trend, but Cloud Nothing’s ebullient, gently snotty lo-fi pop does pair nicely with Wild Nothing’s “Confirmation,” at least on a textural level. I don’t know all that much about Cloud Nothings besides a vague Ohio address, a CD/cassette forthcoming on California’s Bridgetown Records, a tendency to use… More »
