    Newer-to-the game Blackburn Recordings dropped a very nice 17 track compilation not too long ago, featuring exclusive tracks from Salad Fork favorites such as Cloud Nothings, Sleep Over, and Big Troubles, among others. You can still download this mix, for free, here and now, you can purchase it on a 150-run cassette tape featuring art by Molly Smith. Blackburn also has a Sore Eros 7” up for sale called Taal Compass, be sure to pick that up if your into mellowed out lo-fi folk. Below is one of my favorite tracks from this compilation, Sultans’ stunning There Goes My Girl, the attractive guitar riffs and soothing vocals will melt your heart into magma.

    Dylan Baldis’ moniker Cloud Nothings can seemingly never disappoint. His latest 7” features the catchy track Even If It Worked Out which is available through Old Flame Records. It seems as though Dylan is able to create a solid pop track that won’t get old after a few weeks, and it separates him from other ‘pop’ artists. Along with Best Coast, he has chosen to go the ‘singles’ route, which I believe helps to keep a hyped artist from ‘dying out’. Good move on your part, Dylan.

    Cloud Nothings: Even In The Summer [Track Premiere]

    In honor of #musicmonday, I have made a brand new Cloud Nothings track avaliable for stream. Even In The Summer will be on my Mixtape For Haiti, which you can help make possible by pledging to my Kickstarter.

    This track is ‘crazy catchy’ and has become one of my favorite Cloud Nothings songs. If you want to get it, help me fund #mixtapesforhaiti! Also, this track is one of a few upcoming releases (future 7”) that are planned for the tape, which will be an awesome summer mix for you to bring to the beach with.

    Cloud Nothings: Little Raygun/Morgan + Group Tightener 7”

    Much thanks to Fader for posting up this awesome song from the Campfires/Cloud Nothings split. It’s super catchy and exactly what you’d expect from the Cloud Nothings. Happy listening! Get the tape from Bathetic

    Cloud Nothings/Campfires Split

    Gorilla Vs. Bear posted another new Cloud Nothings track, called Morgan , which is off of this super rare (run of 250!)/limited edition/hand-numbered 7” pictured below, which you can get from Group Tightener. It’s nine bucks, but it’s still cheaper than the Best Coast 7” that sold out-stop complaining homies. Also, if you are a Rhode Island resident, the show in Providence is still TBA, but is most definitely still occurring Monday, March 8th. Keep your eyes peeled on the Cloud Nothings myspace for more details.
