Check this mix Selected by Dylan Baldi of Cloud Nothings. It's part of the Hype build for the release of the next album “Attack on Memory” out January 24th on Carpark Records. Also check out the Cloud Nothings 'Cleveland Mixtape' from earlier this year to DL below.
Dylan says: "While I was writing the songs that would become *Attack On Memory*, I listened almost exclusively to music that was made before I was born. This is a pretty common practice for me, actually, but I took it to a new level while making the record.
I more or less memorized every guitar solo on the best Thin Lizzy albums, listened to only The Wipers for about 3 weeks, and fell asleep to Black Sabbath every night.
This mix condenses my listening habits into an easily digestible "best of", songs that strongly affected what I was thinking while writing my own music. Not to say that every song on *Attack On Memory* sounds like Killdozer, but I do think that the influence of these particular tracks is often obvious, and hopefully sheds some light on why the new Cloud Nothings album sounds so different from any of the past recordings."
