About Israel Nash:
Cosmos-wrangling Americana upstart Israel Nash returns from Texas Hill Country with his Silver Season, a deeply gorgeous and wholly immersive nine-song set that plays less like an album, and more like a cross section of time and space. The man’s fourth LP ventures farther down the acid-soaked trail blazed by 2013’s Rain Plans, arriving in lush and expansive territory. Here, this Missouri son sounds more assured than ever, supported by his highly capable band and production inspired by psychedelic greats. Israel Nash’s Silver Season is best played loudly, and sounds wonderful in headphones.
Like the record before it, this one was made on Nash’s 15-acre swath of land in Dripping Springs, Texas, with one key difference. While Rain Plans was recorded inside of the new home he shared with his then-pregnant wife, Silver Season was born in the studio Nash built outside and named Plum Creek Sound, a 1,400 square- foot Quonset erected in March. The band was ready to begin in late May when the floods came, filling the building with water and muck. Nash and the boys pushed on anyhow. Digging trenches, hauling sandbags, clearing mud, and plugging in—that’s how they made an album, doing what needed to be done.
About Matthew McNeal:
After years of touring in support of the 2015 debut ‘Compadre’, McNeal and longtime drummer Andre Black return with ‘Good Luck’, an LP recorded by Grammy award-winning Ted Young (Kurt Vile, The Rolling Stones). Backed by an all-star band, the album weaves in and out of genre atop the analog hiss of a 1971 tape machine. Matthew McNeal delivers inventive storytelling over a groove-laden soundtrack, sonically mirroring the dynamic landscapes seen while weaving across the country.
