Once again ... Pure and Familiar and Golden.

The very first time I listened to Rain Plans, I knew this was a band on the brink of classic rock greatness. This new album without a doubt should push them into that elite realm. I preordered to just get the first two tracks sooner than later -- and there's every reason to believe that Silver Season is going to be a staple on my stereo for many years to come.



I'm only here for this song.

I absolutely love this song for:

#1 - the bass line (bass freak) and overall music arrangement. It sounds "live" for the most part; or at least the musicians played their respective instruments live and they mashed it up.

#2 - Lyrics and everything else.

I too have paid the price for many things in life...need better judgement on when it's "time to run" ;)

It's chill but funky - not sure what he was going for but I've introduced this song to a few peeps that wouldn't normally listen to his style of music and they always end up feeling it, especially after the "bridge", towards the end.

This is probably my favorite song, period...


Love the Vibe!!

This is right where I live. It is everything I want to hear that is gorgeous
harmonies, and sana fe hight desert.

About Israel Nash

A native of the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, singer/songwriter Israel Nash Gripka blends elements of rock and country with gentle psychedelia and undercurrents of rural folk. After moving to New York in 2006, he released his debut LP, New York Town, in 2009. The influence of '60s and '70s artists like Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Band, and Crosby, Stills & Nash could be heard in his Americana-inspired sound. Seeking a more textural and electric-based sound, he recruited Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley to produce and play on his follow-up album, 2011's Barn Doors and Concrete Floors. By this point he was signed to Dutch label Continental Record Services and had found increasing success in Europe and the U.K., releasing the live album 2011 Barn Doors Spring Tour: Live in Holland that same year. After five years living in the city, Gripka relocated from New York to the small rural town of Dripping Springs, Texas, located outside of Austin in the Hill Country. Shortening his name to Israel Nash, he and engineer Ted Young recorded his third album, Rain Plans, to analog tape at his home. The album's rich, atmospheric country-rock sound drew comparisons to Neil Young and became a favorite at NPR and several influential American radio stations when it was released in the U.S. in 2014. Working again with London-based Loose Records, in 2015 he followed up with Silver Season, which followed a similar path while adding more psychedelic textures to his sound. ~ Timothy Monger
