The New Pornographers w/ Cloud Nothings at College Street Music Hall (New Haven)
Premier Concerts – The New Pornographers w/ Cloud Nothings Thursday, July 27th @ College Street Music Hall (New Haven) $30-$35 / 7:00pm doors / All Ages Tickets On Sale NOW: http://ticketf.ly/2pTPEqU ------------------------------------------------------ Premier Concerts, DSP Shows, and Manic Presents: The New Pornographers The New Pornographers have a new full length album called Whiteout Conditions coming out on April 7. It's the first release on the band's own Collected Works Records. About the new album's first single, NPR declares, "Hold on tight: it's another relentlessly exuberant, propulsive jam from The New Pornographers. The latest in the band's deep catalog of clever and addictive power pop is "High Ticket Attractions," Of the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman notes that, "At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn't sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let's try and rock in a different way." Since their debut in 2000, The New Pornographers have released six studio albums including their most recent, Brill Bruisers, hailed as an "exuberant, synthpop-infused set" by Rolling Stone, "infectious" by Harper's Bazaar and "the grand and purposeful hookfest that you would hope these guys would come back with" by Stereogum. Pitchfork went on to note that "with the futurist sound of Brill Bruisers, the whole band embraces a more electric version of itself-bulked-up in chrome-plated armor, firing on all cylinders, and ready to steamroll anything in its path." The band celebrated the release with a special NPR Music "First Listen Live" concert at the legendary Brill Building, and performed songs from the album on both "Conan" and the "Late Show with David Letterman. Listen: http://www.thenewpornographers.com/ Cloud Nothings Cloud Nothings was founded in a Cleveland basement, the one-man recording project of Dylan Baldi, an unassuming, then 18-year-old student of song with a breathtaking ear for melody. Prolific from the start, Baldi’s early work was rough but immediate: crudely recorded, spring-loaded spasms of Buzzcocks-informed pop that quickly found an online following among the lo-fi-inclined. When an opportunity presented itself to open a small show in Brooklyn, Baldi abandoned a still-in-progress final project to be there. The gamble paid off — he’s been touring ever since, using every available break to write and record more. In 2010, Carpark unveiled Turning On, a retrospective introduction that combined early 7? singles and the full-length debut (a limited release on cassette and vinyl) from which it took its name. The following year, Cloud Nothings made its proper Carpark debut with a thrilling self-titled LP that found Baldi in a studio for the first time, shedding the many layers of hiss and distortion that had once obscured (or enhanced) his every sugary hook. What followed was an unexpected breakthrough, 2012?s Attack on Memory, an album that very loudly (with the help of producer Steve Albini) announced the arrival of Cloud Nothings as the sound of more than just Baldi: Caustic and gargantuan, it marked the first time our young hero wrote with and for his longtime touring band, drummer Jayson Gerycz, bassist TJ Duke and since departed guitarist Joe Boyer. Touring intensified, rock critics slobbered, and the ceiling was raised considerably. Enter yet another first: the highly-anticipated follow-up. Here and Nowhere Else is the sound of Baldi further realizing his potential not just as a collaborative bandleader but a singer as well. The sometimes frightening interplay that galvanized its predecessor is refined here, Baldi’s cyclonic guitar parts and Gerycz’s seismic drumwork more tightly clenched and nuanced than they’ve ever been before. It’s an album every bit as ferocious as what we’ve recently come to expect — only smarter. Listen: http://www.cloudnothings.com/
