Cloud Nothings, 'Turning On' (Carpark)

Turning On
Critical Mass
Release Date: October 12, 2010
Label: Carpark

by Josh Modell

Cynical ears might find Cloud Nothings too raw or half-baked, but hidden beneath their home-recorded cacophony is a melodic knack that approaches Guided by Voices at their prime. Credit one guy -- 19-year-old Dylan Baldi -- for the fuzzy nuggets: puckish indie earwig "Hey Cool Kid," garage gurgler "My Little Raygun," the power-popping "Can't Stay Awake." Scrub these songs a bit and you'll find love and acceptance across genres. But please, don't scrub too much -- the dirt makes Turning On gleam in just the right way.
