Peaced and Slightly Pulverized
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 Omaha musicians. Peaced and Slightly Pulverized's sounds are alternatingly tender and 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 and 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 ris ing tide of swelling guitars, it's riffs gilding the melody and 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.
