ROCK | Nothing 

For fans of ethereal, fuzzy, warm rock 'n' roll this new band to Relapse Records hits the spot. Not quite heavy, not entirely shoegaze, it embodies all those things while carving out something unique. Space between hits is the band's vehicle for attack, as swirling, cavernous tones wash over your ears. Meanwhile the drums crash like waves breaking on shore with occasional outbursts of timpani, all coming together to lift up the listener in a bobbing sea. The vocals are withdrawn and nostalgic as they aid the music's palette, instead of standing on top of it. Hailing from Philadelphia, this band brings a sound to Rochester that is sonically satisfying and worth checking out.

Nothing performs with Merchandise and Cloakroom on Wednesday, June 4, at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8:30 p.m. $15. bugjar.com; bandofnothing.com.
