Michael Nau - Accompany

A singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Maryland, Michael Nau is known for a dreamy, reflective take on indie rock tinged with country, folk, psychedelic, and vintage pop influences.  Although Nau's music has always been known for a reflective, "dreamy" countenance, his latest, Accompany, settles into a consistently blurry, midtempo bearing that's particularly lost in thought and memory. Helping this perception along are impressionistic lyrics that capture feelings and experiences without necessarily naming them. A song like the Carole King-evoking "Shiftshaping" epitomizes this effect with its sometimes indistinguishable wash of strings, synthesizers, guitar noodling, and ghostly backing vocals adding dense atmosphere to more in-focus piano and vocals whose lyrics are concerned with emerging from a period of sleep and forgetfulness. Other songs, like the jaunty highlight "Painting a Wall," regretful opener (or does it just sound regretful?) "Sharp Diamonds," and the nostalgic "Relearn to Boogie," lean heavily into floaty steel guitars or, in the case of the latter, vibraphone. Even relatively lucid entries like "And So On" and the organ-centric "Comes to Pour," with their relatively crisp rhythm sections, are set against a backdrop of reverb and sustain. It's an especially dreamy -- and seductive -- album and one that seems to find comfort in collaboration. ~Marcy Donelson, allmusic.com
