BSWC One-a-Day: Nic Bommarito - Once a Freak, Always a Freak

This tune is from a wonderful collection of music by Nic Bommarito and was released at the end of January by the netlabel, 12rec. Today's selection is an artfully quiet piece. 12rec used a keyword that I found really appealing: "Dreampop".

According to the release notes, Nic has studied philosophy in Ann Arbor and Albuquerque before moving to Tibet in 2006.

"Nic Bommarito is a talented musician, too. He got in contact with us in late 2006, and we spontaneously decided to release his Taciturn LP at 12rec.

The Taciturn LP fuses instrumental Rockmusic with moments of Alt. Country and epic Indiepop, keeping an eye on melody and structure. Imagine a mixture of Canadian GY!BE, the Americana Avant-Garde of Chicago's Brokeback and the huge melodies of Italian Postrockers Giardini di Mirò."
Enjoy this piece, I know I did.
