Photos (for Impose): Cloud Nothings, Fluffy Lumbers, and Dream Diary at Monster Island Basement

This show happened last week, but you can check out some photos of Cloud Nothings, Fluffy Lumbers, and Dream Diary at Monster Island Basement over at Impose.  I was feeling very flash-o-phobic, so it’s definitely not my best work, but you can get the general idea of the mood of the evening.  I’d been looking forward to checking out Fluffy Lumbers for a long time, but at the beginning of the set Samuel Franklin despondently explained that he planned on having a full band for SXSW, but that their drummer had to be in court and could no longer go on the tour.  Major bummer dudes.  Instead, Fluffy Lumbers played as a duo and improvised the rhythm section on pedals.  There were some noise jams that were really good, but I couldn’t hear any of Franklin’s vocals over all of the electronics.  And I really like the words/melodies to these songs.  I’m not sure that they’d quite worked out their new set-up yet.  Oh well, I’m sure I’ll hear them another time.

Cloud Nothings are one of THE bands to watch out for.  Their songs are just so good.  They have the stage presence, the laid-back vibe, and the scuzzy sound to really be noticed.  They’ve been everywhere lately, but I’d expect to be hearing a lot more about them from major media outlets after SXSW.  I’ll let the music speak for itself.  Check out the track below.  Absolutely one of my favorite new bands.
