7PM / $7
Null return with their second LP, "Act Of Love", a meditation on heavy psych, droning heaviness, and repetitive chants in 8 songs. Underscoring the haunting melodies formed by trance-like guitar lines and sung vocals is a swamp-thick sludgy bass tone, created by fuzzed-out synth and pounding drums. Null feature members of punk champs Coliseum but appeal more to fans of groups like Lungfish, Om, and Cloakroom.
The band has spent a couple years honing the sounds on this record after their initial LP, as well as a string of splits with bands such as Self Defense Family and Husband Stitch.
