iTunes Review

Cleveland’s Cloud Nothings make the transition from one-man studio project to full-fledged rock group on the ferocious and exhilarating Attack on Memory. In the process, leader Dylan Baldi and his bandmates manage to cross Nirvana’s volcanic angst with Sonic Youth’s abrasive minimalism as they churn their way through this bracing set. Baldi confronts the nihilism coursing through his lyrics with a bratty sort of defiance—his raw-throated vocals mix torment with perverse delight. Bashing drums and howling guitars pound home the raging frustration within “No Sentiment,” “Our Plans," and “Stay Useless.” “Wasted Days” is an eight-minute explosion of merciless throb and thrash worthy of The Velvet Underground. Behind these tunes' lethal thrust is a surprising grasp of song structure and dynamics, lifting the music beyond routine punk spew into something more rarified. Legendary producer Steve Albini (Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Pixies) does a superlative job at documenting Cloud Nothings’ live sound in the studio.

Great way to start the year

Worth it alone for 'Wasted Days' and 'Stay Useless'. Far more than just 90's notalgia!

Nice

Sounds like Casablancas and the band not to shabby either

Decent

Pretty good album. My main criticism is that the two tracks that should have been strongest, Wasted Days and No Future/No Past, are both too long.

No Future/No Past is quite passive till the end when it properly kicks off, thats OK but I kinda feel like it would have been better as two seperate tracks.
Wasted Days does the opposite, it starts strongly but then 3 minutes in it kinda loses its way.

Thats a pity as it leaves the album without any real standout tracks, but overall its still a decent album.

Cloud Nothings' prolific lo-fi pop is the brainchild of Dylan Baldi, a Cleveland, Ohio native who was still in his teens when the buzz about his music started. Baldi was majoring in audio recording at college when he dropped out to focus on the music he was making at home. After a few months, he uploaded the songs "Hey Cool Kid" and "Whaddaya Wanna Know" to his MySpace page, which led to gigs with Woods and Real Estate, and 2010 singles released via Group Tightener and Old Flame Records.
