Capturing beautifully the precise energy & realness of their vast experiences as street performers, this self titled EP from New York six piece The Good Morning Nags offers audiences an authentic, uplifting experience.
Traveling Outside The Body is an incredibly atmospheric, complex collection of compositions, the likes of which range from the deeply thoughtful & provocative, to the ultimately calming & consciously soothing.
The sort of release that reminds you of the power of the album, the strength of a collection under a particular light – the experience is much more mighty when taken on in its entirety, as intended.
When the writing is genuine & thoughtful, and when the humanity of the performance is clear & captivating, all you really need is the song. That’s all you need with this release.

Birchwood are doing whatever it was that certain bands were doing a decade or two ago that made them really seem fresh & carefree – unaffected by the industry or the rules or the expectations.

The project brings back the artist’s uniquely creative approach to music production. This is the work of a composer, a musical craftsman. The sound is so crisp & real yet equally smooth & dreamlike.
