17 Feb 2012, 16:38 by Wormwood37Hey folks,
Another one from the record books. And now I'm just chilling at work, watching old Parks and Rec episodes, looking up recipes for what to bring to a potluck tonight, and trying to be patient until my chance to finally drink Pliny the Younger at the UCI pub tomorrow. If you're unfamiliar with the rare beer Pliny the Younger, it's basically the Mew of beers. That MAY be the first beer-pokemon joke ever. You're welcome.

Cloud Nothings - Attack on Memory (Noise Rock/Punk)
Thank you 2012. Seriously, it's about time. If post-punk, punk, noise rock, or really any form of harder indie rock is in your wheelhouse, it's probably as good as you're going to get this year. "No Future/No Past" builds fantastically, basically on one line throughout the song (until the end). "Stay Useless" should sound good to just about anyone's ears; it serves as the most pop-like song on the album and resembles late-80's-to-early-90's punk. "Wasted Days" comes in at an epic nine minutes and doesn't waste a second.
Way Too Quick Verdict: The first album of 2012 that I can comfortably say is going to make my Top 20 for albums of the year. Probably the first I can say will comfortably make my top 50. "No Future/No Past" and "Stay Useless" will probably easily make my 'Top x-amount Songs of the Year".

Hope you're having a fantastic Friday morning. I'm just eating a tangerine and watching last night's "Parks and Rec" instead of doing my work. It's the best choice I've made in a long time. Perhaps YOU made the awesome choice of listening to my radio show last night. If not, here's what I played (so you won't be left out when everyone's talking about it at the watercooler today).
