Nicolay is an artist who follows his own unique muse no matter where it leads him. These may be covers and leftovers but it's also a fine introduction to his current style of writing.
Favorite track: Balthazar, Impresario (Frank Turner cover).
I like both tracks the same, it made me choose 1, These are dark times. The fact that this is The Hold Steady sounding like they should is a lantern of hope. I never thought I would hear new Hold Steady like this again. Joy is reborn. john parsons
