HOT TRAXXX: Cloud Nothings - Stay Useless

Holy shit - Cloud Nothings went from a really cool band to something truly special in the blink of an eye! I saw them earlier in the year and it was a hell of time, and goddamn this new album is everything you would want it to be. "Stay Useless" is easily Attack on Memory's centerpiece, a total rock song with Dylan Baldi hitting some chill inducing notes, all masterfully recorded by the great Steve Albini.

It sounds fresh, exciting and most importantly enduring, something that I hope becomes the trend in 2012 - now with the added pressure of the bar being set so high by January's Attack on Memory. Don't miss it.
