There Is Nothing Left For Me
ETHER returns with their sophomore album There Is Nothing Left For Me Here, truly honing in on their NOLA sludge influences and reverb soaked somber melodies. The record was written amidst the separation and divorce process of a member, which steadies the mood of the record toward complete and utter abandonment. Lyrically, the album touches on the personal but focuses on current sociopolitical affairs: the whitewashing of historically tragic events, western programming, capitalism, and other tenets of denigration of the human condition. The record is as emotive as it is crushing, combining haunting melodies with Sabbath -esque riffs, to present something truly cathartic. ETHER maintains a DIY punk ethic, releasing their own records and booking their own tours, from which members learned in their time in the hardcore scene.
