Review: Don't worry, if this is the first encounter with Nolan Potter's Nightmare Band. Take it from us the troupe are anything but the stuff hiding beneath the bed and in the closet. In reality, they're nothing short of overtly-positive, life-affirming, and celebratory, calling on vast walls of sound and to create commanding avant-folk and psychedelic rock overtures. Stylistically, there's a mythological undercurrent, like being transported to some strange alternate dimension, where nymphs play Fenders and wizards a Wurlitzer. Quite where the inspiration comes from is anyone's guess (well, OK, a little research will tell you plenty), but let's not get bogged down in conceptuality. Songs such as "Seahorse Retreat" are perhaps the best examples of the act's ability to make surrealism feel universally accessible, ode to joy and love and happiness. "Pity In The City" is a jangling combination of acoustic and plugged-in guitars, Potter's vocals lilting atop incredibly complex arrangements.
