Nick 13 -- Nick 13

This album sure isn't new, but since it predates Adobe and Teardrops, it's worth a review here.

Released in 2011, the Tiger Army guitarist's solo effort takes a statelier approach to music than the psychobilly band. And since June 2011, these songs have haunted me, popping into my mind unbidden. Considering how much we have going on in our heads at any given time, the fact that these songs are repeat earworms years after the fact should tell you something. In fact, I'm almost positive I downloaded Spotify just to listen to this album in full.

The soft, contemplative ballads featured here are enough to lull a weary heart to rest. Nostalgic, bittersweet, and hopeful, this is a collection of songs that will stay with you for some time to come.

  1. I love it when the Psychobilly people go country. Another good one is by Sarah Blackwood of The Creepshow. One of my favorite Psychobilly bands. Her solo effort was (in my opinion) are refreshing surprise compared to her regular stuff. I can e-mail you a copy if you're interested.
