Mr. Fitzmaurice wrote very enthusiastically the other day about the noisy genius of Cloud Nothings, nom de guerre to Cleveland native Dylan Baldi. Of all the hooks that populate his rapidly growing songbook, the one at the heart of "Hey Cool Kid" socks my stomach hardest. In a good way! Today brings us a remix of that song from Memoryhouse, one that transforms it into a humid synth safari, without stripping it of its heady core. It is good. Check out the both of them below as well as the bonus treat thereafter. GENEROSITY TOUR 2010.
