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”). The cover will be included on Robotic Empire’s second Nirvana tribute album, Whatever Nevermind, which is due out on Record Store Day and features contributions from La Dispute, Touche Amore, and Torche among others. Last year, the label put out In Utero: A Tribute. “Something In The Way” is already one of the gloomier tracks on Nevermind, and Nothing aren’t trying to redress it in any particular way. Their cover features a lone piano delicately treading over ambient room-tone sounds — there might even be a violin thrown in there too, in case you weren’t already weeping. Listen below.
