First Listen Review: Sarah Bethe Nelson – “Fast Moving Clouds”


Genre: 60s Influenced Indie Rock

What I Liked: The album sounds a lot like the likes of Courtney Barnett. Has a lot of the instrumentation trying to play around the lyrics. The first song is quite interesting in that it incorporates a guitar solo at the end almost sounding like something on a Yes album. The second song sounds like taking from the books of Allah-Las.

What Could Be Improved: Like Courtney Barnett, the songs on here often focus too much on the lyrics that the instrumentation takes a backseat in playing the same chord repeatedly in order to make an atmosphere, but makes it kind of boring. Also, great lyrics are only great if they have some passion in them. The singer here sounds half asleep or her mind is elsewhere.

Would I Listen Again: Maybe
