Most blogged artists: Kanye West, Cloud Nothings, Acid House Kings
US rap star Kanye West remains the hottest topic in the blogosphere on November 12, according to The Hype Machine. Husband and wife Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore, known as Tennis, take second place, while US indie act Cloud Nothings takes third. Joining the top ten is Sweden's Acid House Kings.
Cloud Nothings, the moniker of 19-year-old Dylan Baldi who reportedly records music on his own but tours with a live band, just released a new track titled "Understand It All" from the self-titled debut LP releasing January 25. "The band started only a year ago with Baldi making lo-fi rock out of his parents' basement outside of Cleveland," writes Modern Mystery (modernmysteryblog.com). "In the past year Cloud Nothings has released an EP, singles and made their way on [a US] tour coast to coast."
Swedish pop band Acid House Kings was founded in 1991 by brothers Johan and Niklas Angergård and Niklas' sister-in-law Julia Lannerheim. The band released a new single titled "Are We Lovers or Are We Friends?" from their forthcoming fifth album, Music Sounds Better with You, out on March 22. "Almost six years since the release of the highly acclaimed Sing Along with Acid House King album, Sweden's pop perfectionists no. 1 are ready to release new material," writes The Pop! Stereo (popstereo.blogspot.com).
