Slightly more than 10 years ago, local singer-songwriter Dylan Baldi, a frustrated music student at Case Western Reserve University, recorded a couple of songs in his parents' Westlake basement and posted them online.
He was hoping for a way out of school, and he got it when a New York promoter heard the tracks and recruited him to play a bill featuring up-and-coming acts Real Estate and the Woods.
Baldi then formed the Cloud Nothings to play the show and subsequently signed a record deal with the Washington, D.C.-based label Carpark.
Last month, Carpark reissued the Cloud Nothings’ debut, Turning On
, and this week, the label will release the band's latest effort, The Shadow I Remember
. For the new album, the band reunited with producer Steve Albini, who helmed the indie rock group's breakout 2012 album Attack on Memory
At 4 p.m. on Saturday, the band will celebrate the album’s release with a livestreamed concert from the Grog Shop
