az_B3420_Bringing Down the Horse_The WallflowersKait Connaughton – The Wallflowers – “One Headlight” – 

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.


Billy Dries – Mac DeMarco – Salad Days – 

So you’re just sittin’ there right? And boooooom queue up the DeMarco, man. VICEROYYYYYY, you know? Bow wow ow wow, I shred on my axe all the time, bro.

6bdc5341Kathleen McKeveny – Cloud Nothings- Here and Nowhere Else – 

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.

Unknown Kate Marshall – Soko – “We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow” – I Thought I Was An Alien
I was watching this really endearing video of 20 strangers that were paired up to kiss for the first time (trust me, you don’t get second hand embarrassment that you assume would come with watching that…check it out here​) and about 30 seconds in, this hauntingly beautiful song chimes in with the line “if you’re not ready for love, how can you be ready for life” and I was instantly hooked to this french singer/songwriter. Paired with the video, the videographer and artist created such a charming and intimate moment I wasn’t really expecting at all.

What Is The WLOY Staff Listening To This Week?

Thursday, February 27th, 2014 by Billy Dries

3724697Leslie Weis – 5 Seconds of Summer – 
More accents and boybands!! Woohoo! This pop rock band, 5 Seconds of Summer, comprised of four adorable Aussies is pretty new to the scene and as well as millions of other girls all around the world, I’m obsessed. 5 Seconds of Summer began in December 2011 when Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford and Calum Hood joined together and started posting videos of themselves performing covers of popular songs to YouTube. A little bit later they were joined by drummer Ashton Irwin, and the current 5 Seconds of Summer lineup came to be. Last February, 5 Seconds of Summer announced that they’d be the opening act on One Direction’s worldwide arena tour and hysteria among all teenage girls immediately ensued. The boys are now currently signed to Capitol Records and are working on their debut album. Their new single, She Looks So Perfect​, has just made me even more addicted and it’s starting to become unhealthy and kind of scaring me.
