Soft Crash is the latest release by Orland, CA's Nothing People. Its an SS Records vinyl-only release, limited to 1000 copies. I keep reading references to Chrome, Hawkwind & Simply Saucer wherever they're mentioned. Sure, I hear what that's about- they're talking about the meandering punk-fuzz guitar & their occasional off-kilter electronics. Call me crazy, but I'm kind of hearing Gary Newman, Superchunk & Truman's Water in the vocals and the songs themselves. Joy Division is also a fair reference point, especially to the bassline in the title track. At times, they even remind me of a sort of less hardcore and less ridiculous Men's Recovery Project. Well, whatever dude: Music reviews are mostly bogus anyway. So, "don't take my word for it".
