Cloud Nothings Release New Single, “Understand At All”

Cloud Nothings just came out with a dreamy new song. The band started only a year ago with Dylan Baldi making lo-fi rock out of his parent’s basement outside of Cleveland. In the past year Cloud Nothings has released an EP, singles and made their way on tour coast to coast. Not bad for only a year on their own. “Understand It All” is from Cloud Nothings first self-titled full length, produced by Baltimore’s Chester Gwazda, known for his work with Dan Deacon and Future Islands.

Recorded at the home of Wham City, Baltimore’s Copycat Building, the scratchy catchy tune makes me desperately want to escape on a European holiday to see them with Les Savy Fav in Amsterdam on their upcoming tour. Dylan Baldi records all the tracks by his lonesome so let’s hope the live band keeps up the great energy. “Cloud Nothings” is released January 25th, 2011.

Parlovr Preview ‘Heaven/Hell’ on Stereogum!

Parlovr Canadian power trio Parlovr have been exploding onto the scene with their infectious indie pop since their self titled debut was released in 2008 on Dine Alone Records. Since then the boys have been working on their upcoming EP Heaven/Hell/Big/Love which will be released October 19th.

The idea for the EP was based around a song “Hell,Heaven” which the trio were playing continually at live shows. Heaven/Hell/Big/Love was created as 4 or 5 pieces that weren’t directly tied together in a specific theme and were just written without any rehearsal before studio time. The result is an EP split with “Hell,Heaven” which is based on “thoughts of a childhood spent in the middle east” and “Big Love” which is about a “girlfriend who has the ‘look of a man.” Along with the two title tracks are “Where is the Sun” and “Tehching Hsieh” which both add surrealism and romantic dreaminess to the EP.

You can preview “Hell,Heaven” ¬†on Stereogum HERE and be sure to catch Parlovr at Pop Montreal October 2nd at Cabaret Just Pour Rire. The band will also soon be announcing US tour dates for this fall.
