It’s hot and humid in the midwest and especially in Ohio this summer. For some reason there are certain bands and music that lend themselves better to the summer heat, and I think Cloud Nothings is one of those groups.
Not unlike lo-fi acts Harlem or Sleigh Bells before them, Cloud Nothing bring the fuzz in all the right ways and have more of the melody you hear with Harlem than the noise you hear with other contemporaries like Sleigh Bells. Cloud Nothings hail from Cleveland, Ohio and even though we are skeptical that much good comes out of Cleveland, these dudes continue to be a bright light in an otherwise murky city. (wink)
The good people at Old Flame Records are getting ready to put out the latest Cloud Nothing release this summer, a 7″ on limited blue vinyl. The 7″ will be available next week, just in time for some tour dates with Wavves, who we have heard are now being backed up by Jay Reatard’s former band.
