Cloud Nothings

April 3, 2012 / Music

Indie rock, shoegaze, and ambient pop have lately all been making wild comebacks since their heydays of the late 90’s to early 2000’s, and Cloud Nothings has been helping lead that resurgence since forming in 2009. Formed in the Midwest and originally recorded in a basement, Cloud Nothings is 100% indie magic from Cleveland and their latest album, Attack on Memory, has already received “Best New Music” status on Pitchfork.com.

We’re totally diggin’ their sound, and even with relatively few recordings to date (Turning On from 2010, Cloud Nothings from 2011, and Attack On Memory from 2012), they’re making a big splash during their worldwide tour. From Philly to Norway, you can catch ‘em at clubs and festivals through August.  Dylan Baldi started Cloud Nothings as a way to fight boredom at Case Western Reserve University, and within the year he quit school to play the NY club circuit. Three releases later and they’re touring the world – the American music dream!

Check out Pitchfork’s SXSW coverage of Cloud Nothings here, as well as more goodies on Last.fm and Facebook. With any luck, one of their shows on the 2012 tour will be stopping near you!
