New Video: Tired of Tomorrow (Nothing Documentary - Part I)

Nothing embrace the bleak, grimness of Philly in the first part of their documentary for Tired of Tomorrow. Nicky Palermo’s open honesty, compounded by the desolate feel of black & white footage, provides a sense of truth, which, despite its darkness, is equally refreshing. The video offers a small glimpse into his youth and a behind-the-scenes view of the band's creative process.





Harsh Vibes Opening for Ecstatic Vision at KFN April 2

Harsh Vibes takes more of an introspective shoegaze-y angle to psych rock, but drops it out of airy, ethereal textures with an oversized Acme anvil of fuzz and rude, distended guitar tones. The pairing of heavy psych and shoegaze evokes bands like The Telescopes, but unlike The Telescopes, Harsh Vibes has the capacity and the audacity to seemingly explore both genres and all the space between in just a single song. The disembodied vocals are sparse and seem to take a backseat to the hungry, fuzz-laden riffs and textural experimentation. Harsh Vibes will be helping to sendoff stony, rapture-inducing, Hawkwind-style freak rockers, Ecstatic Vision, as they head out on an international tour. Come wish them well, and embrace a bit of sonic nirvana! Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 10pm, $6, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock

New Music Video: "Eaten By Worms" - Nothing

Hehe...Nothing frontman Nicky Palermo captures the aftermath of his last fight in the band's latest music video for "Eaten By Worms". (BTW: The image of a young Nicky pulling back a curtain and going backstage with "Michael Jackson" is just so wrong in all the right places.) The video was directed by Kevin Haus, and you can find the track on Nothing's forthcoming LP Tired of Tomorrow, which is due out May 19 via Philly's own Relapse Records.

Brooklyn post-hardcore band DRIFTOFF returns from European tour

Blending the classic post-hardcore guttural screams with an epic, often tense, but always intelligible wall of distorted guitars reminiscent of shoegazer, Brooklyn emerging band DRIFTOFF (born from a rib of Boston's Junius) comes across as brutal and ethereal at once. The band has just returned from a five week long tour that took them from New Haven's Bar on February 10 to the Tiefgrund in Berlin on March 17, with in-between dates in NYC (Bowery Ballroom), Island, the Netherlands and Italy. Now, that sounds like a pretty awesome vacation! No local shows in sight for them at the moment.
