Cloud Nothings: Attack on Memory (2012)
!! CAUTION !!
The annual game we play in which in protest to the general malaise we get from the Bon Ivers and Feists of the world, we pretend that we're really interested when prolific blog-hype cool kids lean on a New Heavy sound and bring in Albini to rough themselves up. Thanks for your help, Albini; this sounds like Brand New and/or Staind, I can't decide which. Nostalgia rush for modern rock radio might make you flock in; also, not that you asked, but their stuff before this wasn't much better. The last song's called "Cut You," lots of LiveJournal whining, skateboard drama; the "epic" one "Wasted Days" features a harrowing build from emo to screamo. I'm getting too old for this. God fucking tell me this year's going to get better than this tinny annoying shit.
