NPR listeners will get a taste of one of Cleveland's best bands today.

Cloud Nothings' "Stay Useless" is the public-radio gods' Song of the Day.

Of course we've been telling you how awesome the band — led by Westlaker Dylan Baldi — and their new album, Attack on Memory, are for a while now.

So if you haven't tried some Cloud Nothings yet, let the people who helped the Decemberists get a No. 1 album last year introduce you.

They also wrote some words about the band.

And while we're not sure if we agree that "Stay Useless" "spins a litany of hopeless words into a triumph over inertia" (ahem), we do agree it's a great song, one of the best on Attack on Memory. —Michael Gallucci
