Did The Shoegaze Band Nothing Just Become Philly's Most Billboard-Charting Contemporary Act?

If not, these numbers above — spun up in the week after their second full-length, Tired of Tomorrow — certainly have Nothing sniffing around the Billboard charts. And while it's one thing for more mainstream-friendly Philly acts (be they Kurt Vile or The War On Drugs or Meek Mill or The Roots) to show up in the various Billboard horse races, Nothing's appearance there feels like a real victory for the freak side. To say nothing of the fact that, in the new strange reality of the music industry, actual music that actual people listen to actually makes it onto the charts now. Strange days, indeed! But hey: We'll take 'em.
