Israel Nash recon

We saw Israel Nash at The Harvester here in Rocky Mount and they played an entire album from start to finish, it was so Pink Floydish and really great! They opened for Sons of Bill and I enjoyed them as much as the Sons of Bill. I adore this song "Rexanimarum" and "Mansions".

Here is a free download if you want to listen and sample. 

The moral of the story and I have said it a plenty this year since The Harvester opened in April is that I am finding some amazing talent in the opening bands, discovering some real gems! This is one...I am now a fan.


See The Beauty That Surrounds You


The latest release from Israel Nash, Rain Plans, plies meticulously crafted songs with a golden 1970's folk/psych rock palate of guitars, pedal steel, and reverb soaked vocals that coalesce into a sound that Nash calls "Desert Folklore." Hailed by NPR as "widespread Americana at its finest," Rain Plans offers a sonically visual and introspective presentation of the life and nature that endures in his home situated in Texas Hill Country. This special release, See The Beauty That Surrounds You, consists of one live recording, one b-side, and two album cuts from his critically acclaimed album, Rain Plans. So hear, feel, and see the beauty that surrounds you on this short journey through the sights and sounds of the world of Israel Nash.
