Nick Waterhouse – Holly

  • March 31, 2014

Holly, the sophomore release from Nick Waterhouse, is another tight set ’50s and ’60s influenced R&B and garage rock. The follow-up to his 2012 debut, Time’s All Gone, features ten originals and covers filled with guitar rock, catchy melodies, and like the influential film noir classic set in L.A. – Chinatown – displays breathtaking and mysterious atmospherics. Waterhouse, who is an Orange County native who cut his teeth playing local psych/garage rock scene with Ty Segall, covers his buddy’s “It No. 3” as well as jazz musician Mose Allison’s “Let It Come Down.” In addition to these two, highlights include opener “High Tiding” with swinging horns and juke-joint piano and “Well It’s Fine.” – Written by JFelton
