The wonderfully talented Travis McKeveny came into the studio with Kat and Rae before his late night coffee house with WLOY on March 13th. He answered some interesting questions about his musical experiences and writing process. In addition to sharing some fun stories about his sister and currently WLOY Staffer Kathleen McKeveny, who had the chance to be in the studio for that experience. The duo was very funny and we thoroughly enjoyed interviewing them. Listen to the full audio below along with his in studio performance of two original songs. Travis debuted his song “First Light” on the show along with the first track off of his first album Last Years Leaves, “The House Where You Live ,” exclusively on Kat and Rae.

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. Plus they’re twins and super adorable and fun to watch. 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!
Loyola alum, Maria Dontas, impresses with this original song. The lyrics are whimsical and incredibly relatable. Coupled with superb instrumentals, the song is an instant classic.
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.
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.
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.
