Cloud Nothings planning 2013Australian tour

Dylan Baldi, leader of Cleveland lo-fi heroes Cloud Nothings and hater of boring indie rock played with bluegrass instrumentation, has also confirmed via Twitter that he’s working on bringing the band to Australia for a tour next year.





With the legendary Steve Albini behind the boards, the new Cloud Nothings album Attack On Memory has shifted from Baldi’s earlier, murky rock to a clearer, sharper sound that has more in common with the Replacements and Jawbreaker than grunge and shoegaze. FL’s review of the record declared that “across a lean eight tracks and half-hour running time, there’s not a wasted moment or failed hook.” Attack On Memory made the grade on FL’s mid year wrap up of the Best Albums of 2012 beside records from Pulled Apart By Horses, Grimes and Spiritualized.

Yeah I'm female.

Also just looking at Cloud Nothings US dates, they've touring with Silversun Pickups. Geez, what a great double bill that'd be.

Why aren't there that many chicks on FL? Do you guys scare them all away?

Please let Cloud Nothings do their own tour & not Laneway.

It's full of dudes in their twenties salivating over mostly obscure indie rock, forty-something bogan dads and aging hipsters. As if any lady would want to walk through THAT cock-forest.

Well clearly some ladies also like to obsess over music and aren't bothered by the cock forest. Cock forest. Sheesh. That's a concept I don't want to give too much thought to.

I need to go listen to Exile In Guyville now. Or perhaps Bro Hymn is more appropriate.
