Kevin Greenspon/Cloud Nothings – New Split Album

Earlier this week, I gave accolades to Cleveland rocker Cloud Nothings.  Turns out the fine folks at Bridgetown Records are releasing a split album with him and another up-and-coming solo artist, California’s Kevin Greenspon.

The two go hand in hand – Greenspon is a punchier, youthful accompaniment to Cloud Nothings’ sharp sing-along garage rock, though the latter tackles a poppier approach on this release.  Bridgetown had this to say about the disc:

The long-awaited split album between these 2 rising young solo artists opens with 5 new songs by Kevin Greenspon: California weirdo heartthrob pop punk about looking back on teenage years and losing it all. Cloud Nothings rounds out the disc with 5 more exclusive new songs: the Cleveland teenager takes his catchy brand of raw and distorted-beyond-the-red bedroom pop in a direction not seen in his “Turning On” album or subsequent tape/vinyl releases.

The release is limited to 250 discs with full-color inserts and lyric sheets. They go on sale TODAY over at the label’s site, so get one while they’re still around.  Sample a track from both artists below.
