Over the course of the 2017 Nelsonville Music Festival, which took place at Robbins Crossing on the Hocking College campus June 1-4, Ohio University’s School of Media Arts and Studies students recorded a series of stripped down performances from some of the festival’s acts. The performances include a quick interview with Ohio University lecturer Josh Antonuccio, and a number of tunes played on the porch of the rustic Gladden House. WOUB will be unveiling the student’s work throughout July and into early August. 

Since 2009, Cleveland, OH’s Cloud Nothings have been slowly building a loyal fanbase for their clever indie pop, gorgeous melodies, and insightful guitar interplay. Those efforts culminated in both fan and critical acclaim this past January with the release of the refined work that is Life Without Sound.

On day three of the festival, lead singer/guitarist Dylan Baldi and guitarist Chris Brown stopped by the Gladden House for a special acoustic performance of some fan favorites and spoke with Josh Antonuccio about the process of working on Life Without Sound, giving insights on the production and recording process at Sonic Ranch studio in El Paso, Texas.

The highly anticipated Gladden House set featured three Cloud Nothings songs from across their discography, starting with “Now Hear In” from 2014’s Here and Nowhere Else. The performance also included the anthemic “Stay Useless” from 2012’s Attack on Memory and closed with “I’m Not a Part of Me”.
