Backstory: A teenage Dylan Baldi makes catchy low-fi punk songs in his parents' basement and releases a bunch of them on Cloud Nothings' 2010 debut, Turning On. The album is so acclaimed that he decides to turn his solo project into a real live band.

Sneak Attack: Back when people used MySpace, Baldi invented pages for imaginary bands and used them to release some of his earliest recordings.

Hot Clip: Watch an exclusive performance of "Stay Useless" above.
