Track of the Day 516 : Michael Nau – Good Thing

Michael Nau is a new voice to me, although a cursory Google search tells me he’s been putting albums out for over a decade now which have somehow passed me by. He’s a singer-songwriter with a fine voice, a little bit country mixed with a little soul, like a less fragile Kurt Warner perhaps. Whilst I’ve yet to explore the rest of his work, Good Thing has a warm, analogue sound seeming beamed in from the distant past, giving it the quality of a rediscovered 1970s classic. The phrase ‘Got a good thing going’repeats, but doesn’t quite away the edge of melancholy.

Thanks to For The Rabbits, as so often, for the tip.

The first 483 tracks of the day can only be found on my Tumblr. Everything since can be found here. There’s also a Spotify playlist of every single track of the day (or those available on Spotify at least) below:
