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.

Apology / Jurassic Park / Bears’ 3rd Album Cover

Okay, so I owe all of my faithful readers an apology. I have not been keeping up on The Noise Is a tenth as much as I would like. Here come the excuses…but school has been extra tough with graduation in sight and I’ve been kept busy in the meantime with Jurassic Park! Which brings me to my next point, which is that my little basement venue, Jurassic Park, which I briefly discussed with y’all last year, is now flourishing! We’ve got upcoming shows with Cloud Nothings, Total Babes, Sleeping Bag, husband&wife, Big Troubles, and The Beets! It’s gonna be a crazy rest of the year but if any of you live in the state of Indiana, you should try to come to a show.

And lastly, I got way too happy when Charlie McArthur released the beautiful cover art and album name, Greater Lakes, for Bears’ third record

Stream Radio People’s Hazel LP

A couple weeks ago, I posted about the second track, “A Vague Year,” from Cleveland’s own Radio People’s album Hazel out on Mexican Summer. Now you can head over to Self-Titled Mag and stream the entire album and read about Sam Goldberg’s thoughts behind each track. Hazel is availalbe digitally and on vinyl from Mexican Summer’s Shop.

Bears Third Album Preview

Cleveland pop heroes Bears just released an update on their Kickstarter saying that they’re 75% of the way to accomplishing their goal, and that they got the masters back for the album adding that they’re the best songs they’ve ever recorded.  So they put together a quick preview of five songs from the album, listen to them in the video above.  Also, they still need a little over a thousand bucks to hit the goal in their Kickstarter, so go help them out!

I’m DJing @ the Happy Dog This Saturday

So next week, my summer in Cleveland will be over and I will head back to Indiana for my last year of school. But before I leave, I’ll have my last Cleveland hurrah at the Happy Dog this Saturday. I’ll be DJing from 6pm to 9pm and I’ll be spinning a ton of the new LPs I’ve gotten over the past couple months! So it’d be cool if y’all came out and say hey (or cya) and ate some hot dogs while I play Megachurch or John Maus or something else cool.

Kickstart Projects from Bears and Lowly, The Tree Ghost

A couple Cleveland bands need our help to get their music released! Cleveland pop heroes Bears have finished recording their long-awaited third album, but they still need help with mixing, mastering, and releasing it. Misra Records will be helping with the distribution, but they still need help for the vinyl and CDs. They need $5,000, but considering they got over a thousand in one day, it might not be too hard for them to hit the mark. The second Kickstarter is for folk group Lowly, The Tree Ghost, who up to this point have only released a couple self-recorded EPs. They hoping for a mere $500 to go into the studio to record their debut full-length. Here is the Bears Kickstarter and Lowly, The Tree Ghost Kickstarter, now go and help these great locals out!
