NOTHING: Self-titled: LP

Mar 07, 2013

Y’know, I wanted to be like, “Oh great, another band of hardcore dudes (Nothing features members of the now-defunct Philly band Horror Show) who decided to take a crack at shoegaze. Borrring.” But, fact is, I’m a huge sucker for this shit. Maybe there’s an underlying aggression to the punks-turned-gazers version of this genre, but Anne, Whirr, and now Nothing have found very comfy homes on my turntable. There’s not a whole lot of innovation going on here—think a drearier Jesus And Mary Chain or even a darker, de-popped Wild Nothing—but what they do, they do darn well.
