Last week in Austin, in between a marathon of SXSW gigs, Cloud Nothings stopped by the SPIN House and turned in an unhinged performance of "Our Plans," a standout from their 2012 SPIN Essential Attack on Memory. Baldi also sat down at the Sonos Studio down in Austin to chat with us about his utilitarian predilection for pop radio on the road, as well as his affinity for Wipers and how he's been mumbling his way through new songs likely to appear on the band's next LP. Watch on for Baldi's opinions on They Might Be Giants, Taylor Swift, and more.
