2014 Albums of the Year: Cloud Nothings – Here and Nowhere Else

The Telescope presents: the top albums of 2014. We gathered best-of lists from staff and contributors, crunched some numbers and came up with ten records that unanimously wowed us this year.

Whether you’re one to make resolutions or not, you can’t deny the “fresh start” feeling of New Year’s, especially if the preceding year wasn’t particularly awesome. Cloud Nothings were very helpful in many of my not-so-stellar 2014 moments.

Last March, I described Here and Nowhere Else as “a 30-minute album of highly enjoyable jump-around, scream-along punk that demands repeat plays – that is, if you can get past the pogo-inducing opener “Now Hear In””.  Ten months later, and I still stand 100% behind that statement.

Now don’t get me wrong, you don’t have to be having a bad day to appreciate the pick-me-up that is Here and Nowhere Else; if you’re in a great mood, it’ll only make you pogo higher. Really, it’s an album for all occasions — like now. Go listen to it now.
