You see, most days, you know, I will be hating everything at ten. You’re on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you’re on ten on hating everything. Where can you go from there? Where?
Nowhere. Exactly. What I do is, if I need that extra push over the cliff, you know what I do? Put it up to eleven.

Cloud Nothings released Here and Nowhere Else, earlier this week. Considering the introduction most fans had to the Cleveland-based band was the 2011 track “Understand At All”, it’s interesting to see how far the band has come in the past three years.
While the poppy indie/punk sounds from the olden days can still be heard on a handful of tracks, there seems to be bit of a brooding aura to much of Here and Nowhere Else. At some points, it seems as though Dylan Baldi and company are drawing inspiration from the likes of Lync and occasionally You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead.
The 8-minute post-punk epic “Pattern Walks”, the album’s penultimate track, puts the band’s newer sound into perspective quite well. For this reason, it will ruin your life.
I’m really fucking literal.
