It’s been ten months since the NOTHING PEOPLE’s debut Anonymous album came out and since then we’ve heard nothing but praise. In fact, the record wound up on many a Best of 2008 list. 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 Syndicate’s Karl Precoda and the later fucked 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 IITH.
