Short Bursts: Cloud Nothings, Fat History Month, + The Hush Now

We were a bit underwhelmed by last years full length debut from Cloud Nothings, don't get us wrong it had some nice lo-fi pop moments, but overall something seemed to be missing, compared to the bands early singles. Well Dylan Baldi is upping our expectations with album #2, by teaming up with the venerable Steve Albini for the recording of Attack Of Memory at his Electrical Audio Studio's in Chicago. Baldi has offered a teaser for the LP via this :46 sample of album track Wasted Days. Attack Of Memory will be issued by Carpark Records on January 24th.

Earlier this week Boston noise titans, Fat History Month celebrated the release their new 4 track, Gorilla 7" with a show at Charlies Kitchen. Gorilla follows FHM's fantastic full length debut, Fucking Despair released late last summer on Sophomore Lounge. The tracks found on this newly released 7" were recorded in 2009, we're glad they finally made on a proper FHM release. The band will head back out on the road next week to play 17 shows in 17 days, the tour is centered around an appearance at Louisville's Cropped Out Festival. Fat History Month will return home for a show at Doom Dungeon in Hadley and a TBA show in Boston on November 19th.

Lastly we'd like to point you to the terrific new Halloween single from Boston pop giants, The Hush Now. The Legend of Dudley Town was recorded at Mad Oak Studios during the Memos sessions and conjures up historical accounts of CT's haunted, Dudley Town. The single follows in the bands rich tradition of releasing exceptional holiday tinged tracks. After enjoying the creeped out goodness of The Legend of Dudley Town, be sure to go back and check out last years sinister offering, Please Mephistopheles , Leave Me Alone.
