Cloud Nothings is confirmed to open for Titus Andronicus at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on March 6

With Cloud Nothings' high-energy live show and killer guitar riffage, this should be a fun experience for all. More tour info is

Last week Cloud Nothings released a split cassette with Chicago's excellent Campfires band on Bathetic Records. Order info is here:

This week I Rock Cleveland had a great review of Cloud Nothings' Turning On album, where he realized that this wasn't just another lo-fi bedroom rock band: "Just as I thought one, not quite ready for prime-time Californian with poor spelling and improper capitalization had gone out and ruined lo-fi rock for good, in comes this young Clevelander, Dylan Baldi, recording as Cloud Nothings with his one microphone and his nine irresistible pop songs, and, all of a sudden, lo-fi doesn't seem quite so dead. Rather, it seems as vibrant as that day when Robert Pollard first brought together his band and 100 bottles of beer in his Dayton, Ohio garage."

If you're sick of the lo-fi movement, ease your mind by listening to this record and realizing the skills that go into the songwriting and melody that lies underneath the fuzz. It's not what you may think, despite the descriptions. I urge you to do yourself a favor and check it out.
