Up-and-coming Clevelander, Dylan Baldi, has been getting great press for his debut Cloud Nothings LP, Turning On. I’ve wrote about him a lot on The Noise Is, so I really don’t need to repeat any of the incredible stuff he’s been doing. But very recently, Cloud Nothings got posted on Pitchfork for the song “Hey Cool Kid” along with a remix by Memoryhouse. The MP3 I’ve posted the “Hey Cool Kid (Memoryhouse Remix)”, which takes the catchy lo-fi pop track, and adds a ton of soothing synths over it. Dylan and his Cloud Nothings band just left for their tour before SXSW and MtyMx Festival, so check the Myspace for dates.
Dinowalrus are a thrash/drone trio out of Brooklyn NY, reminiscent of LA noise bands HEALTH, and No Age. “Electric Car, Gas Guitar” is a fast-paced, fuzzed-out, thrash-drum, adrenaline-filled track, proving why their name is as abstract as Dinowalrus. Their debut, %, is out now on Kanine Records.
Beach Fossils, out of Brooklyn, are the newest part of the great hazy-pop movement with Ducktails and Real Estate. Expect dream guitars and vocals covered in a summery fog in “Vacation”. This track is off of their upcoming LP from This track is off of their upcoming LP from Woodsist and Captured Tracks hopefully sometime this month.
Wild Nothing Myspace
My last, and definitely not least, track is from Wild Nothing, a bedroom shoegaze/dream pop also on Captured Tracks. “Summer Holiday” is full of pretty melodies with hazy vocals, making it a perfect head-bopper when the weather gets warmer and you start rolling down your windows when you drive. You can grab this 7″ from Captured Tracks, and expect a debut LP in the near future.
