Artist: Nothing Album: Tired Of Tomorrow Genre: Alternative, Rock Though it’s only been two years in between albums for Philly-based alt-rockers Nothing, it feels as if the band has aged much more than that.

SINGLE REVIEW: Nothing – “Bent Nail”

Artist: Nothing Song: “Bent Nail” Album: Guilty of Everything Label: Relapse I really enjoy shoegaze, but for some reason, Nothing wasn’t on my radar.
