Nothing – “The Great Dismal” LP
Syrupy shoegaze with an aftertaste of dark bitterness – that’s the way of Philadelphia’s Nothing. Lulling you into a false sense of fragile gentleness – before launching into a heavyweight wave of loud, howling guitar. And with more than a spoonful of pop genius to help the misanthropic doom go down. Hmmm, lovely. Ten years down the line, their fourth full-length album, “explores existentialist themes of isolation, extinction, and human behavior in the face of 2020’s vast wasteland”.
