After getting his start as the brains behind the late 90s/early 2000s hardcore/punk act Horror Show, Domenic Palermo founded NOTHING in 2011 with the release of the demo Poshlost. Following the release of Poshlost, Palermo met Brandon Setta, who would bring lush, rich soundscapes and a fresh approach to Palermo's vision for NOTHING and to the band's next two EPs, Suns And Lovers (Big Love, 2011) and Downward Years To Come (A389, 2012). NOTHING then signed to Relapse for their debut 2014 full-length Guilty Of Everything. The album, which was inspired by the events surrounding a prison sentence Palermo served from 2002-2004, found widespread critical acclaim from publications such as Rolling Stone, NPR, Stereogum, Spin, Noisey, and many others. Guilty’s reception also enabled the band to tour Europe and North America extensively, including performances at festivals including Osheaga, Roadburn, Firefly, Budweiser Made In America, and SXSW.
Following a tumultuous series of events that left the band personally and professionally distraught, NOTHING experienced a drastic change in mindset, which is clearly apparent in the band's new record Tired Of Tomorrow. Tired Of Tomorrow was recorded over the course of a month at Studio 4 with Will Yip (Title Fight, Superheaven, Touche Amore, etc) this past October, and is the band’s most heartfelt work today. Borrowing from personal memoir and external works alike, NOTHING have worked the deepest influences of their youth & maturation into a package that's ultimately at its most relevant in the present day. Tired Of Tomorrow is a brooding yet mellow release, inspired as much by 90s rock as it is by the darkness of NOTHING’s past.

Ethereal vocals, blaring Shoegaze guitars mixed with swirling synth atmospheres, and propulsive rock and roll drumming is NO SWOON. Based in Brooklyn, Ny and comprised of Tasha Abbott, Zack Nestel-Patt, and Ricky Petraglia, No Swoon released their debut EP summer 2018. Their sound is underlined by an attention to detail and an ear for production. They are hard to pin down as just Shoegaze, just Dream-pop, or just 80s influenced New Wave, but rather exist somewhere in between.
SPRAIN is the artistic vessel of collaborators and friends Alex Kent, April Gerloff, and Aidan Gould. Combining the glacial tempos and sparse arrangements of slowcore, aggression of noise rock, and winding compositions of post rock, Sprain often creates jarring and unsettling music. Vocals are muffled and hushed under dissonant guitar lines, drums crawl along, and bass barely holds the fragile compositions together. These compositions, often unpredictable, can result in anything from noise-guitar freakouts, to crushing doom climaxes, to tender ambience. Through varied influences and passionate performances, Sprain offers a uniquely haunting take on indie rock music.
