{

Highly entertaining.

In the mood for an album of substance? Nick Pope‘s latest release – Howl and Flood, out last month – holds the key to the perfect balance of folky twang, light indie, and pop/rock. The lyrics to all eight tracks are intricately woven into the instrumental compositions, allowing you to really feel as though the tracks came out sounding this polished, as though they could not exist in any other form.

But that’s what Nick Pope’s music does. It mellifluously travels through your speakers, leaving in its wake an ambiance that really just soothes the soul, no matter the subject matter. And he does get pretty sporadic with his lyrics, hosting titles such as “Houses”, “Jurassic Park”, and “Howl and Flood”. But that’s what keeps us on our toes, as we travel through Pope’s world. Highly entertaining, incredibly robust, and extremely beautiful are the three descriptors that come to mind. What do you think?

Impose Favorites: “Hey New York City”, “Jurassic Park”

Howl and Flood is out now via Odd Gift Records.
