CLOUD NOTHINGS – ” I’m Not Part Of Me “

Cloud Nothings’ Dylan Baldi who has truly kept the rock genre afloat. Though the band had its work cut out for it after “Attack On Memory” was lauded as a modern classic in 2012, “Here And Nowhere Else” remains self-assured in the face of any outside expectations. Even as Cloud Nothings slims down to a trio after the departure of guitarist Joe Boyer, the band continues to settle into itself without any noticeable gaps in its sound. There’s a wiry aggression that runs throughout the album, evinced by Baldi’s rabidly snarling chord progressions and the rhythm section’s ability to turn every note into an emphatic punch. Whether the band is going into noisy jams (“Pattern Walks”) or writing poppy post-punk that would make Mission Of Burma drool (“I’m Not A Part Of Me”), Cloud Nothings seems content to live in the moment; we’re just lucky to be along for the ride.
