Arthur Nasson–West Cambridge Cowboys: One of the stand out independent artists who began releasing his own music before it was cool, Nasson, is on his 7th album. Once his music was picked up by MTV for contracting and a feature with NPR came around, his music began to boom–everywhere. His ability to cross musical styles and yet saturate the songs with their own distinctive original sounds and character often conjures up the notion that he is “beatle-esque.” The album is imaginative and lyrical with richly arranged sounds. Hints of a wide variety of influences from rock, jazz, classical, neo-soul, experimentation and punk are all up for grabs throughout the album while still maintaining a cohesive identity.
