This fierce, fabulous duo graced Loyola at WLOY’s Late Night on March 27th. They are simply amazing. They both play a multitude of instruments and sing like angels.

Check out their full studio album, Lessons Learned, which features incredibly talented artists such as Leni Stern, Will Lee and Tom “Bones” Malone. Their music will make you tap you feet and feel good!

This week, I’m throwing it back to a lovely little song I’ve been car jamming to since the ripe age of 4 years old. When did my fantastic taste in music begin? I’d like to believe it begin this nostalgia-packed 90s tune. Warms my heart with thoughts of old school nickelodeon, neon scrunchies, and the sweet sound of noise makers on the spokes of my bright pink bike through Flushing Meadows Park. Ah, the 90s.

Just in case you were under the impression, as I (regrettably) was , that you could outgrow punk, Dylan Baldi reminds us it is not that kind of thing. 32 minutes of forward-leaning punk, Here and Nowhere Else, is catchy even when Baldi screams things like, “I can feel your pain/ and I feel alright about it”.  This is the irresistably anthemic quality of Cloud Nothings. It’s just so good, I can’t help myself. So I won’t, errrrrrriiiigggghhhttt?

Bikini Bottom: Here and Nowhere Else is the resolution to a crisis I didn’t even know I had.
