For the band Nothing, processing trauma seems to be a languageless thing, which can emerge either in fragments of consciousness or in great swathes of sound. In fact, you could say the hardcore-turned-shoegaze band's sublime new record, The Great Dismal, is the music of trauma. Bandleader Domenic "Nicky" Palermo and Co. have been plumbing these depths since first breaking onto the scene in 2010 — but reach new levels of beautiful and painful articulation on their fifth album. Not everyone will be able to relate to a band who uses PTSD for musical fodder, but those who can will have something to treasure forever in this album. Emma Madden
