iTunes Review

There’s a sense of freedom and adventure to Nicole Atkins' third album, Slow Phaser. The blues and country reference points that were so evident in the singer/songwriter’s initial work are skillfully blended in with fresh techno and prog-rock textures to create a striking hybrid at once edgy and elegant. Atkins’ vocals have the richness and kick of aged burgundy, veering from erotic insinuations to stinging kiss-offs (sometimes in the same song). Molten basslines and tremolo guitar dabs give “Who Killed the Moonlight?” and “Girl You Look Amazing” a seductive slink that underscores their conspiratorial tone. Skirting the border between temptation and torment, Atkins connects with her inner soul diva on “The Worst Hangover” and flashes a steely disdain worthy of Chrissie Hynde on “What Do You Know?” Tracks like the sarcastic yet bubbly “Cool People,” the jittery “We Wait Too Long,” and the spiritually twisted “Sin Song” unsettle even as they satisfy. Atkins leaves the listener in the throes of moody rapture on “Above as Below,” bringing this artistically bold and emotionally striking collection to an evocative close.

Her Best Yet

Let's just get this out of the way first: Nicole Atkins has one of the most amazing and strong voices in music today. Hands down. No need to try to counter that statement. You won't win the argument. She just does. It's a shame more people aren't familiar with her music. She really deserves to be heard. That being said, I really didn't expect to go come away from her new album thinking it was her best effort yet. But it is. This is the best she's ever sounded on record. The song writing and selection compliments her voice perfectly. She's really hitting on all cylinders here. Do your favor pick this album up. You'll be glad you did.

Absolutely Amazing

Nicole is an amazingly talented songwriter and performer!! slow phaser is so totally excellent! Alternative feels with a disco/Roy Orbison twist!

Love this album

…and listening to it over and over. If nothing else, give “Who Kill the Moonlight” a spin and you’ll understand why!

After befriending members of the Avett Brothers and logging several years with the alt-country band Los Parasols, Atkins briefly returned to the tri-state area, where a series of open-mike performances...
