Lifted, the new record by Israel Nash, is truly one of the best records of 2018. A bit of Big Star here, some Laurel Canyon Laid Back harmonies there, with a heavy dose of Beach Boys Karma blending the whole thing together.
Relocating from New York to Dripping Springs, just outside of Austin, seems to have done wonders for the wandering spirit of Israel Nash. His latest record, Lifted, is a marvel. Part Beach Boys part Laurel Canyon Psychedelic Rock, this record is a throwback to the future in all the best possible ways.
