Stream Nothing’s new album Tired Of Tomorrow in full via NPR Music
Shoegaze punks Nothing have been teasing their upcoming album Tired Of Tomorrow for weeks now through various singles and mini-documentaries, and now you can listen to the album in full over at NPR Music.
Tired Of Tomorrow, the band’s second LP (the first being 2014’s Guilty Of Everything) is out May 13th on Relapse Records and was recorded with Philly super-producer Will Yip. According to NPR’s Mike Katzif:
The rippling sheets of guitar noise in “Fever Queen” and the sludgy “Curse Of The Sun” show that this is a band that loves its ’90s shoegaze, alternative rock and even spacious black metal. But Nothing also diversifies its formula. “Nineteen Ninety Heaven” kicks off with a big, heavy rock beat, leaving listeners to anticipate another mighty onslaught that never comes. Instead, Palermo and Setta settle into a dazed calm defined by brightly chiming strums adorned with strings. Later, “Everyone Is Happy” sways gently with a crisp acoustic guitar while piano and atmospheric reverberations amplify the feeling of drifting to sleep in a haze of meds. After Guilty Of Everything‘s darkness, these flourishes add depth to the squalor and leave room for the songs to breathe.
The band will be holding their record release party at Union Transfer on July 8th with Citizen, Culture Abuse, and Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler. For tickets and more information, check out the XPN Concert Calendar.
