The FADER Premieres Nap Eyes' Thought Rock Fish Scale.

The FADER Premieres Nap Eyes’ Thought Rock Fish Scale.

In advance of its February 5 release, The FADER is premiering Nap Eyes’ Thought Rock Fish Scale: “The year’s first classic indie rock album. For my money, Nap Eyes are one of the best rock bands in business today, handily spanning the space between Bob Dylan and The Microphones. Nigel Chapman’s songwriting grips like the best of them. A timeless release, already.”

Nap Eyes Announce Tour with Cian Nugent + Share “Lion in Chains.”

Nap Eyes have announced a spring headline tour in support of their new album Thought Rock Fish Scale, which is out February 5th. Coinciding with this announcement is the release of the album’s centerpiece, “Lion In Chains.” The almost seven-minute long epic is one of several movingly ineffable moments on the album that gathers loved ones and legacies at a cautious if affectionate distance, folding them into carefully articulated but centerless koans.

Nap Eyes: Whine of the Mystic (PoB-020)

Nova Scotia’s Nap Eyes is the greatest band you’ve never heard, and Whine of the Mystic is their first full-length album, a brilliant small-batch brew of crooked, literate guitar pop refracted through the gray Halifax rain. Recorded live to tape with no overdubs, it’s equal parts shambling and sophisticated, with one eye on the dirt and one trained on the starry firmament, inhabiting a skewed world where odes to NASA and the Earth’s magnetic field coexist easily with songs about insomnia and drinking too much.
