CD Review: Cloud Nothings

Cloud Nothings (carpark)

comment

By the sound of things, you'd never guess that Dylan Baldi — the 19-year-old Westlake native who records as Cloud Nothings — made his full-length debut in a real studio. And it sounds a lot like his earlier records: no polish, no gloss, and few signs that the album wasn't laid down in one whirlwind half-hour session. The 11 songs are part Guided by Voices low-fi fuzz, part Wavves DIY indie pop, both filtered through a hyperactive teen who has a lot to say and not much time to say it in. There's more fury and pop than before, and more discipline too. It's the sound of Cleveland's best one-man band finding his voice. — Michael Gallucci
