Artist: NOTHING PEOPLE
Title: Smells Like Metal
Format: LP
Label: Captcha
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"NOTHING PEOPLE keep getting stronger and their 4th LP, Smells like Metal, is proof of that. This record beautifully pulls together the sound of the bands three prior efforts, fusing dark synth, psych and proto punk with elements of an eastern vibe. It sounds like raw material that Nam June Paik would run through a mix of broken CRT equipment and fried transformers. The album breaks repeatedly from pop boppers into dystopic soundscapes replete with bleak auto-erotic frequencies reminiscent of J.G. Ballards Crash. It sounds like a high-speed joy ride rolling up to a 3-car pile-up at 80 miles an hour. It feels like the Nothing People are on that ride, understanding that our civilization is in decline, headed east into the hills wanting to escape it all, the buzz and the Hollywood madness. LP is housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve containing multiple inserts and downloads." -Captcha.

Title: Youre Invited
Format: 7"
Label: Permanent
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Nothing People, like Wooden Shjips, are one of our generations great bands, that doesnt tour much. Unless you live in or around their hometown of Orland, California, or you happened to pick up one of their excellent releases on S-S or HoZac, you may not have ever heard of them, but those who have, love them. On previous releases, theyve blended influences such as Chrome, Hawkwind, Roxy Music, and obscure proto-punk bands like Twinkeyz into a sound thats all their own. This new limited edition 7", housed in a texured glue pocket sleeve with gold foil stamping on the exterior, is the first release featuring former Monoshock member Doug Pearson! This release includes two of their most rockin numbers to date. Limited to 600 copies!" - Permanent.

Title: Anonymous
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Over the last couple of years, the Nothing People have released three stellar seven inch records and during that time they have built a ⿿fan club⿝ that includes Anopheles Records Karl Ikola, the guys at Victim of Time, Siltbreezes Tom Lax, In the Reds Larry Hardy, the folks down at Your Flesh, Ryan Wells of Z Gun, and many more. And over the last couple years this ⿿fan club⿝ has asked me ⿿Whens the full length?⿝ over and over again. Well, now they can shut the hell up because the Nothing Peoples first album is here! And let me tell you this, while the Nothing Peeps have plenty of songs that yell out ⿿put me on a 45⿝, they have just as many that demand to be heard in long form. Want an example, check out ⿿Sickness⿝ (http://www.myspace.com/ssrecords). It is the kind of song you want to hear on twelve inches, and there are 8, 9, 10 hell I lost count, but there are a bunch more. So, yeah, it is time for you to get a big dose of proto/glam/psych/punk/wave excellence. On clear vinyl. 600 pressed." -S-S Records

Title: Cmon Girl/Walk On
Format: 7"
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"After a few years of roaming around in space and time, the Nothing People land on Earth to do two earthly tunes. Rather than tap into futuristic sounds, our Orland brethren have accessed their past. This cool-as-fug forty-five not only references the bands first seven inch (released on S.S. back in 2006), but some rock n roll heroes: Velvet Underground, Modern Lovers, and a little bit of the Gizmos. Strummy, raw, no frills party tunes is what you get here." - S-S.

Title: Late Night
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Its been ten months since the Nothing Peoples debut album Anonymous came out and since then weve heard nothing but praise. In fact, the record wound up on many a Best of 2008 list. We are thinking that Late Night, their second full length, is gonna make even more people happy. From the sci-fi, psych, proto punk bombast of the first, the Nothing People shift gears into a moodier, darker, and creepier existence. Here you get the influence of Dream Syndicates Karl Precoda and the later f-ed up work of Scott Walker. The record does sound like a late night, on a deserted highway, maybe somewhere around the farm town of Orland, CA, where these three -- nope four (they added a former Monoshock keyboardist!) -- are from. And that cover art? It is by Ilth. The Nothing People have released singles on S.S. and HozAc, as well as the aforementioned Anonymous, which is now in its second pressing." -S-S

Title: Soft Crash
Format: LP
Label: SS
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Lots of bands, lots of records and usually by record two most bands crap out. Not the Nothing People. Since their first EP was released on S.S some four years ago, every subsequent Nothing People/S.S. release has gotten better and better. Soft Crash is no exception. And like the jump between their first album (Anonymous) and their second (Late Night), Soft Crash both expands and secures the Nothing Peoples sound. A proto-punk pulse mixes with a dark synth throb for something that sounds both of yesterday and tomorrow or in the words of Z Guns Ryan Wells, These guys are science fiction! Sci fi? As in Chrome, Von Lmo, and Simply Saucer? Natch. And the man is right. However, unlike the ton of bands who get rifled in with classic underground names and cannot deliver, the Nothing People do their comrades justice. 2009s Late Night LP made a ton of year end Best Of lists. The year before Anonymous hit a bunch of Best Ofs. Soft Crash to your Best of 2010 list. Soft Crash is a great record. Includes download code." - SS.
