  • Thurston Moore — Trees Outside The Academy
  • Minus The Bear — Highly Refined Pirates
  • Modest Mouse — The Lonesome Crowded West
  • Nada Surf — Lucky
  • The Thermals — The Body, The Blood, The Machine
  • Lupe Fiasco — Lupe Fiasco’s Food and Liquor
  • Public Enemy — It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back

Cloud Nothings — “I’m Not Part of Me”

Here And Nowhere Else is out for real today, so be sure to give it a listen or cop it, and this video is one of the most normal ones Cloud Nothings has ever done, but it’s still kind of weird. It’s a good time.
