David Nance on Bandcamp.

Rating: 3 out of 4.

I’ve come around to Third Man Records core. I would kill to hear David Nance & Mowed Sound live with a cold overpriced beer in one hand and starlit thoughts in one brain. Good, unfussy bass and piano. Did they steal the strings from some Glen Campell wannabe b-side? Who cares. Glorious. I wonder if Jack White heard this and went nah nah nah nah nah gotta make it less dynamic, don’t scare off your audience, rock and a roll! OK. Can we get David Nance & Mowed Sound to open for My Morning Jacket and force MMJ to make good music again and stop farting reverb? No reverb farts here with “Mock The Hours.” How does one mock hours? Literally what does that mean. Whatever. Did David Nance look at a Red Rock and said, “That.”
