When: Fri., May 9, 9 p.m. 2014
A couple of years ago, the local indie rock outfit Cloud Nothings’ manager suggested the group make an album with producer John Congleton (Modest Mouse, St. Vincent). That manager no longer works for the band, but the band finally got to work with Congleton. He produced its new album, Here and Nowhere Else, a fine collection of new tunes which the band recorded in Hoboken at Water Music over an eight-day period. It’s a poppier, cheerier effort than 2012’s Attack on Memory and suggests singer-guitarist Dylan Baldi has refined his approach to singing.
