    In 2020, to commemorate a decade of Nothing, Domenic Palermo and the group travelled to Rhode Island studio Machines with Magnets to fulfill a two part thought experiment with producer Seth Manchester. The vision was to capture the sound of nothing on both a sonic and subsonic level. On the surface of the 180 gram vinyl you experience the recordings of the live room setting of Nothing with meticulously placed mics, tuned drums and guitars, amplifiers, pre-amps, EQs and compressors set. With the help of legendary vinyl cutter Paul Brekus, a methodical double grooved b side hides the second more cerebral part of the vision. Manchester takes a page from Alvin Lucier’s “I Am Sitting in a Room" projecting the 2010 Nothing demo through the live room speakers repeatedly until the song dissolved into the tonal sound of room resonances that seem to span infinitely.

    Agreed, big let down. Ive been waiting since last July for this record. It finally came and there is a blank matte black notebook and the record. Should have been sold as an art piece and not a “10 years of NOTHING”. Pretty misleading and shady for almost 70 dollars.

    Other than the packaging, this album is a pure waste of money. There isn't any music present and the only sound is a dull hum for the most part. This record is when being avant garde goes too far... That, or when blindly pre-ordering a record from a band you are a fan of when you haven't heard a song off of it comes back to bite you squarely in the ass.

    I'll leave this description as a review since I feel the description of the record was misleading. There is no actual music on this release. "On the surface of the 180 gram vinyl you experience the recordings of the live room setting of Nothing with meticulously placed mics, tuned drums and guitars, amplifiers, pre-amps, EQs and compressors set." They left out the part about no one actually playing the instruments. The sound on the record if of a silent room. Side B tries to do something with double grooves one of which is silent and the other seems to have amplified some resonance of the air-conditioner in the room or something. Keep this in mind before spending money on it.

    Recorded in the modern-legendary Rhode Island studio Machines with Magnets, Seth Manchester manages to capture the sound of a room, the sound of machines and the sound of existence in an invitation to meditation. The piece on side A borrows from Cage’s 4’33”, demanding attention to the sound around you. Manchester captures the sound of guitar amplifiers, body movement and room resonance masterfully, making the listener feel transported to the room.
    Side B, on its double groove, presents an interpretation of Nothing’s 2010 demo played back in the live room, melted into a beautiful resonated drone.
    While this record may not be what most Nothing fans expected from a celebration of Nothing’s ten year successful career, it is a daring project that questions the meaning of music and sound, while being appropriate to the bands name - this is what Nothing sounds.
