The long-anticipated split by WHIRR and Philadelphia’s nihilistic noise-makers 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.

And now you can stream the first cut from the split by the way of the NOTHING track July The Fourth which can be streamed below:

The split 12″, which is set for release by Run For Cover Records comes with an etched b-side as well as a full-length In The Studio documentary DVD and pre-orders are available from the labels webstore.
