Technically Total Babes is a Cloud Nothings side-project, but since that Ohio garage outfit is entirely the brainchild of Dylan Baldi, a side-project sort of suggests another take from the dude that's not full-band. Total Babes is actually two members of the touring band, Jayson Gerycz and Joe Boyer, along with Chris Brown and Gary Spolarich, and the music wears the same ebullient stripes as the Nothings.
