The long-anticipated split by WHIRR and NOTHING is in no way a let down to anyone that’s been waiting for it. The two new songs from each band are perfected with the
expertise of veteran producer Will Yip. Whirr’s signature atmospheric haze enthralls
more than ever in what seems like a nine-minute dream. Their masterful control of
soundscapes is matched only by an intensity that their shoegazing predecessors could
only wish to achieve. Nothing’s contribution is a full-on aural assault: the two songs are
aggressive, yet harmonious.The ongoing blown-out barrage lulls with only brief periods
of quiet melody that hit like armistices. Yet, the songs are harshly beautiful in a way that
perfectly captures the Philadelphia band’s definition of reality. The split record comes
with an etched b-side as well as a full-length Whirr/Nothing tour documentary DVD.
