Oakland’s Saything recorded their latest album Nonsense with Steve Albini—no big deal, just the dude who produced Surfer Rosa for The Pixies and In Utero for Nirvana, along with thousands of other albums. That alone was reason enough for me to want to check out Nonsense. But Saything isn’t the first Oakland band to work with Albini—local metal gods High on Fire and Neurosis both recorded some of their best albums with him. While Saything’s music is not nearly as heavy as those two, there is a noise rock component plus a slacker/indie rock vibe that work well when coupled with Albini’s production techniques, which are generally designed to punch you right in the gut with the music.

If you’re still not convinced you should check Nonsense out, you’re ridiculous. You can peep it yourself right here:
