Local news: Cloud Nothings sign to Carpark Records
By David Malitz
Here’s a pairing that we can easily get behind. Rambunctious indie upstars Cloud Nothings have signed with local label Carpark Records. The D.C.-based label that serves as home to acts such as Dan Deacon and Toro y Moi and introduced the world to Beach House will release an expanded version of “Turning On,”l the debut that was written and recorded entirely 18-year-old Cleveland firecracker Dylan Baldi.
In addition to the nine fuzzy, jittery songs on the original, limited-edition album, the Carpark version -- out on Oct. 12 -- will include two songs from a limited-edition 7” and another two from a limited-edition cassette. Good thing we spent all that money on those limited-edition records. We’ve been talking about this band plenty over the last few months: we loved ‘em at SXSW (even shot some not-half-bad-if-I-say-so-myself Flipcam video, above) and chatted with Baldi before the band’s gig opening for Wavves back in June.
Cloud Nothings return to Rock & Roll Hotel on Sept. 9 opening for [Expletived] Up. That’s a can’t-miss show. For now, take a listen to a recently recorded Daytrotter session.
