Cloud Nothings : Stay Useless

Another SXSW 2012 buzz band, Cloud Nothings have a scrappy, DIY rock aesthetic that translates a whole lot better in their live show. On tape, Stay Useless has the generic melodic indie punk sound of the '90s American high school/record store comedy. You know the band that plays at the end of the prom, or over the credits, in which the “alternative” boy/girl wins over the assembled GAP collective with their spirited but non-threatening “alternative” pop punk music? This is more or less what the single sounds like. It’s Liv Tyler in Empire Records, who seems cool in comparison to Rex Manning, but is actually a cup-cake baking girl scout with excellent teeth and shiny, shiny hair.
