Over the course of the past six years, Omaha, NB musician David Nance has released three full-length albums for labels Grapefruit and Ba Da Bing, a 7-inch, numerous cassettes, CDRs and unlicensed »cover albums«. His latest full-length is credited to the »David Nance Group« and features Nance alongside his recent hot-shit live band of fellow Om aha musicians.
»Peaced and Slightly Pulverized« sounds are alternatingly tender & brusque. The anthemic »Poison« with its fuzzed-out guitar riff that leans into a Crazy-Horsian guitar maelstrom and white-hot solo, to »Ham Sandwich«; a blisteringly frantic rant about a lunchtime torment-uncomfortable in its directness. Side one closes with the epic seven and a half minute »Amethyst«; an emotional odyssey with Nance & Schroeder strangling their guitars into a twin-guitar, barbed-wire duel.
The album's centerpiece is »In Her Kingdom«, an emotive ballad that fades into view with a plaintive guitar strum that ebbs and flows with a rising tide of swelling guitars, it's riffs gilding the melody & adding flecks of gold to Nance's tale of poverty and grace. The album closes with »Prophet's Profit›s biting commentary on false idolatry utilizing the group's not-so-secret weaponry of Nance and Schroeder's six-string simpatico to bring the listener home.
