- Here and Nowhere Else by Cloud Nothings
2 reviews. Write a review for us »
Cloud Nothings' previous album 'Attack on Memory' was notable in my mind not just because it's excellent but also because it was the first record of the current grunge revival when it started to feel like a revival rather than just a few isolated bands, maybe even the first great album of Grunge: The Next Generation.
Now Dylan Baldi and co are back with this new John Congleton-produced LP, toning down the fierceness of the previous album a little for a sweet spot somewhere between Nirvana (Baldi's very good at those cracked Cobain shouty bits) and college rock types like Archers of Loaf and Superchunk, but I have to admit that while they do sometimes ascend to squalling noise-pop heights I'm not feeling the instant connection to 'Here and Nowhere Else' that I got from the last one.
If 'Attack on Memory' was Nirvana meets Mudhoney, this one is like Radish meets Johnny Foreigner, a well-meaning facsimile of a beloved cultural movement imbued with a childlike reverence for the guitar noise of the '90s. It's spunky and tuneful and the kids will love it, but it's not quite the ferocious time-warp I was hoping for.
After some of the records I've had to review this week, though, I'm more than happy to settle for not bad, and I'd probably have been kinder about it if they hadn't already set the bar so high.
7/10 Rob Gannon Customer review, 21st April 2014
"Cleveland rocker Dylan Baldi thrives on impulsive and instinctive direction and with 2012’s successful switch from pop-punk to post-hardcore in mind, Here And Nowhere Else is surprising only for being his most predictable move to date."
