Little Dylan Baldi has come a long way in just over a year. The 20-year-old Clevelander, who makes music under the name Cloud Nothings, earned tsunamis of praise for his debut single released in October 2010 and his debut album, Cloud Nothings, released this past January. His chaotic, lo-fi pop squibs struck all the right hipsters the right way.
Since then, he’s formed a full band, spent time on the road, and graduated from recording in his parents’ basement to recording his second album, Attack on Memory, due out in February, with legendary indie-rock engineer Steve Albini at his Chicago studio.
He’s just announced a tour of more than three dozen club dates that will take the band across the country from mid-February through early April, landing at the Grog Shop on April 5.
