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. 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.
