‰ÛÏHis masterful instinct for arrangement, along with his reedy voice, earns Nau a place in the rock‰۪n‰۪roll underdogs‰۪ Hall of Fame.‰۝ - Pitchfork "A beguiling debut - a warm bath of baroque pop, country and Hazlewood-like balladry" - Uncut ‰ÛÏRecalls cadences of 1970s Ned Doheny and solo David Byrne, with a hint of Brian Wilson‰۝ - The Fader "A breezy, laid-back union between country, folk, and classic pop" The Line of Best Fit "Intimate and inviting" Q Michael Nau returns with his new album, Some Twist, on Full Time Hobby. Some Twist is the follow up to 2016‰۪s Mowing and its announcement comes amidst a flurry of recent activity. Two weeks ago, Nau debuted songs from Some Twist on KCRW‰۪s Morning Becomes Eclectic and headlined two sold out shows on back-to-back nights in Los Angeles. He has received extensive BBC radio play and been selected as a ‰ÛÏ6 Music Recommends‰۝ pick. One-off single ‰ÛÏLove Survive‰۝ cracked the top 50 on Spotify's Global Viral Chart and Elton John has played Nau on his Beats1 show. The first single from Some Twist is ‰ÛÏGood Thing‰۝. Bright piano and fingerpicked guitar weave together throughout the song with a chorus that swells with feedback fuzz and crashing percussion. Nau‰۪s ever-present sense of humor, one of the hallmarks of his songwriting, gives the song a wry sense of purpose amidst its reflection.
