Nap Eyes - Thought Rock Fish Scale

Lest we forget. Hearing that new Nap Eyes material encouraged me to revisit their glorious previous release Thought Rock Fish Scale. Here's what I wrote about that at the tail end of 2016.

Albums of the Year # 9 Nap Eyes

Second portion of Nap Eyes today. Their two albums, from the last two years Whine of the Mystic and Thought Rock Fish Scale are really companion pieces. Fluid and free form within the confines of Indie Guitar music, they're a delight.


Mid to late Velvet Underground are the key influence here but Nap Eyes channel it cleverly in their own direction and it sounds very much a 2016 record. Slackers, but quietly confident ones.
