nick nicely Gets Reissue

If you dig heavily on Garys of both the Wilson and Numan variety, you may find British outsider electro-psych artisan nick nicely to your liking, as he fits somewhere between the two extremes. Born Nickolas Laurien, the enigmatic and always lowercased nick nicely doesn't transmit the volatility of the former, nor the new wave dance floor standards of the latter. Instead, he marries minimal disco and post-punk analog washes with the type of quirky melodic structures reminiscent of Skip Spence. Surely Sir Ariel Pink has borrowed some of his vocal inflections from this deep space banger. Captured Tracks has chronicled some of nicely's most important work with Elegant Daze: Songs from 1979-1986, a 13-song compilation that captures nick nicely's knack for cold futurism and hummable hooks. Killer stocking stuffer. -- Kenny Bloggins, The Decibel Tolls
