Album Review

Nina Walsh
Bright Lights and Filthy Nights Malicious Damage Records

Article written by Elisabetta P - Sep 14, 2009

Having a CV that includes a tribal techno album, collaborations with great names in electronic music and an album cover with a 1950s ‘happy days’ print, Nina Walsh does not come across as your traditional folk songstress. You could expect Euphoria beats bursting out of your stereo on the inset of the first song.
Yet, in the same style of Portishead’s Beth Gibbons with ‘Mysteries’, Nina Walsh has immersed herself into folk music for her album ‘Bright Lights and Filthy Nights’, creating an alluring and intriguing album with 1960s acid folk overtones brought to life by ambient and dreamy electronic melodies.
Vocals and guitar are the backbone of this album, with strings appearing to enhance the evocative and intimate nature of the songs. ‘Love Leech’ and ‘Strong’ stir up the beat with catchy pop that bursts from bare guitar and viola.
Nina Walsh’s name might still have been known only in specific music circles but this album has the beauty and the magic that transcends genres and should give her the popularity she deserves.
