Artist: Big Nothing
Label: Salinas Records
Reason We’re Cranking It: Big Nothing’s latest album is actually a big something, filled with raucous riffs and a trifecta of vocals from Pat Graham (lead singer of Spraynard), Liz Parsons (formerly of Casual) and Chris Jordan (formerly of Young Livers). The microphone mingling is an alt-rock buffet filled with a tasty selection of offerings that while unique to their particular front-person, fully compliment the overall sound and vibe of the band as a whole.
What The Album Tells Us About Them: It’s easy to get lost in the melodic, fist-pumping propulsion of “Chris,” but beneath the surface layer strengths there is a lyrical framework that the entire album is constructed upon, making this a band who knows how to approach songwriting from all sides of the build.
