Cloud Nothings have unleashed their newest album a full week early. Here and Nowhere Else doesn’t officially drop until April 1 (via Carpark/Mom + Pop), but the Cleveland noise-rock trio are streaming the fast-approaching full-length on NPR right now. Anticipation for the follow-up to 2012’s Essential Attack on Memory has been building steadily for the past year. Remember, the Dylan Baldi-led outfit performed the recently shared “Psychic Trauma” during South By Southwest 2013, and several months later, Baldi played an acoustic version of the thrasher while in Vienna. Then came the teaser video for the LP and, soon afterwards, Cloud Nothings’ January show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, in which they tore through Here and Nowhere Else in full. Since then, Cloud Nothings have revealed the record’s anthemic closer, “I’m Not Part of Me,” the aforementioned “Psychic Trauma,” and taken the stage at SPIN’s South By Southwest 2014 day party at Stubb’s.
Now, finally, fans can enjoy the entire eight-track effort, produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Bill Callahan), by heading over to NPR. Digital pre-orders of Here and Nowhere Else are available through iTunes, and fans can secure a physical edition at Cloud Nothings’ website.
