And it looks like Pitchfork has treated our hometown boys well.

Cloud Nothings’ Attack On Memory Stream

Cloud Nothings’ third album Attack On Memory drops a week from today, but you can hear the entire album right now via Complex. Preorder for the album is up on Insound.

Cloud Nothings – “Stay Useless”

MP3: || Stay Useless ||

Check out the newest track from Cloud Nothings’ upcoming album, Attack on Memory. Although Dylan Baldi has shown us that Cloud Nothings are going a different direction with “No Future/No Past”, “Stay Useless” still shows us why we fell in love with them in the first place. The song debuted on Rolling Stone this morning, where Dylan stated, “I’m trying to take Cloud Nothings to different areas, songwriting-wise, so I figured I should try and finish off the ‘poppy’ songs with a bang.” Attack on Memory is out January 24th on Carpark, and it’s available for preorder on Insound.

New Cloud Nothings Album In January

Consequence of Sound just posted about Cloud Nothings newest album, Attack on Memory, that’ll be coming to us on January24th from Carpark.  The album was recorded last summer with famed producer Steve Albini.  From an interview with Albini, he said that Baldi, “wanted to create arrangements that would allow for more improvisation and variability when played on the road.”  You can hear a clip of the song “Wasted Days” in the video above.

Baldi and his crew stopped by my DIY space in West Lafayette, Jurassic Park, and played Attack on Memory in its entirety, and any Cloud Nothings fan there, including myself, could easier notice the darker and more mature sound.  It’s definitely a step in the right directions.  Check out the cool Polaroid from when they stopped and played.
