NORDIC NOMADIC: "Worldwide Skyline"

Rating: 4/10

Label: TeePee Records 2011

Review by Kimmo Toivonen

The third album from TeePee Records in a row, and by far the most bearable. There's actual singing here! Nordic Nomadic is a project of Chad Ross, who sings and plays guitars in Quest For Fire, "Canada's most beloved psych rockers". This isn't really rock at all, more like acoustic guitar music with whisper-like vocals and electric instruments used as effects. The press release compares the album to Neil Young and Earth, I could describe this as "Kansas and Simon & Gartfunkel gone fishing together".

Some of the melodies are actually quite beautiful and I was able to listen to the whole album easily, but I don't think that there's anything too captivating here. Still, I'd rather listen to this again than those previous two TeePee audio assaults.
