Fucked Up's second album, 'The Chemistry Of Common Life,' synthesizes the bands' numerous musical directions into an expansive epic about the mysteries of birth, death, and the origins of life (and re-living). Merging elements of hardcore riffage with up to 70 tracks of guitars, organs, winds and vocals, (including 18 guitars on the first single, the fatalistic "No Epiphany"), the music remains iconoclastic and startling, with Pink Eyes' vocals front and center.

It's not often that Cleveland, Ohio gets a ray of sunlight in the winter, but Cloud Nothings set out to change that in a characteristically dreary November in 2009. Cloud Nothings is the bedroom project of Cleveland teenager Dylan Baldi, who has spent the past months traversing the endless wires and non-wires that make up the internet, carving out a niche for his take on lo-fi indie pop. Pairing Robert Pollard-like sentiments with, as Stereogum puts it, the "ebullient, gently snotty" attitude that comes with teenage energy, Baldi immediately caught the attention of California indie label Bridgetown Records, who released his 8 song debut "Turning On" in 2009. The resulting press and public attention led his music to a wider audience as more and more people get addicted to his nonstop hooks and carefully crafted songs. Carpark Records

Nation of Thieves began in early 2009 with the desire among friends to create a band that was devoid of the pretensions and limitations of previous projects. Using their shared love of the passion and intensity of hardcore as a foundation to build upon, the band cultivated their style throughout months of practices until a unique sound emerged.
