Nothing – “Something In The Way” (Nirvana Cover) Video (NSFW) (Stereogum Premiere)

Philadelphia’s Nothing released their cover of Nirvana’s “Something In The Way” on a compilation covers album called Whatever Nevermind. The record mimics Nervermind’s tracklist, with a different band covering each of the seminal album’s songs. While Nothing’s cover doesn’t stray far from the original, it does heighten the melancholic lyrics by including a plodding piano… More »

Camera Shy – “Your Only One” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Camera Shy is the indie-pop project of Whirr frontman/Nothing bassist Nick Bassett and former Whirr singer Alexandra Morte. Together, they take the swooning shoegaze melodies of Whirr and strip away the moody guitar noise, fashioning it into something softer and gentler and utterly guileless. They’ve got one official release to their name so far, last… More »

Nothing – “Something In The Way” (Nirvana Cover)

Philly’s Nothing have shared a cover of Nirvana’s muted and melancholic “Something In The Way,” the last track on the band’s seminal 1991 album Nevermind (second-last if you count the secret song “Endless, Nameless”).

Nothing – “Chloroform” Video

Nothing’s split EP with Whirr is out this week, and to mark the occasion the band has shared a video for “Chloroform.” The track finds Nothing at their poppiest, but Don Argott’s clip matches footage of the band performing with scenes from a campy kidnapping. Watch below. More »

Nothing – “July The Fourth”

Nothing released their debut album, Guilty Of Everything, earlier this year via the largely metal-focused Relapse Records. It was an odd yet fitting choice for their brand of intense shoegaze to be surrounded by so many hardened peers. Their next release comes on the more appropriate Run For Cover in the form of a 12-inch… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Last week, in this space, I lamented that fact that, Gwar, who built a low-budget DIY empire partly because of their music video aesthetic, had left barely a trace of influence on the many, many music videos coming out today. I may have been spoken out of school there. Because this week’s video, which come… More »

Nothing – “Bent Nail” Video (Feat. Kurt Vile)

Last month, Philly shoegaze badasses Nothing ripped a hole in the universe with their album Guilty Of Everything. In the new video for the heavy-as-anything album track “Bent Nail,” the band rocks out in front of an actively hostile crowd, playing on as the audience pelts them with food. Fellow Philadelphian Kurt Vile has a… More »

Stream Nothing Guilty Of Everything

The ranks of expansively pretty and brutally fuzzed-out metal/not-metal bands seems to grow every day. Philly shoegazers Nothing are closer to recent-vintage Alcest than they are to Deafheaven on that spectrum, but there’s a heavy intensity to their enormous-sounding debut album Guilty Of Everything that can’t be attributed to just a My Bloody Valentine influence.

Nothing – “Dig” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last we heard from shoegaze outfit Nothing was via an unsettling coming-of-age clip for the title track from their 2012-released EP Downward Years To Come. Now the duo, who have been playing shows with Deafheaven and is out on the road with Whirr, is slated to release their debut LP Guilty Of Everything and are… More »
