Nash’s fourth LP, which further embraces the psychedelica of 2013’s ‘Rain Plans’, was recorded in Plum Creek Sound, the studio he built on his 15-acre swath of land in Dripping Springs, Texas. Although recording was interrupted by floods – which involved digging trenches, hauling sandbags, and clearing mud – Nash and his band (Eric Swanson, Joey McClellan, Aaron McClellan, Josh Fleischmann) created an album unconcerned with such mundanities.
Recorded with engineer Ted Young (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth), its nine tracks draw comparisons to Ennio Morricone, Neil Young, and Tame Impala, his spiritual lyrics inspired by nature, family, song, and the occasional trip into times and spaces we can’t normally access (“I don’t live like the others/I see twice as many colours.”)
