The second album by Nathan Bowles (Black Twig Pickers, Pelt, Steve Gunn) deploys banjo, percussion, piano and voice to explore the rugged country between the poles of Appalachian old-time traditions and ecstatic, minimalist drone. Nansemond is the name of a fading dream as much as it is a place name; the word has largely disappeared from maps of Virginia. Once a vast swampland, now a ghost-choked locale. This is the wetlands landscape Nathan Bowles conjures with this cinematic suite of contemplatice set pieces. 150g vinyl with full colour inserts and download code.
"Nathan Bowles is like my spirit animal. It's the real shit...beautiful then, beautiful now. Timeless. He's got the modern edge too, and the experimental thing down, and it sounds totally modern as well. That's why it's so great" Kurt Vile.
