I saw that nanigan nickleby was doing work with Tokyo Cigar, of whom I am a fan, so I decided I would check his project, Dead Letters in Exile, out. I was pleasantly surprised. This release is different than what is offered by the status quo. The word ‘refreshing’ seems appropriate. One of my favorite cuts from the album is Old Ben Kenobi. Nickelby shows off his clever writing skills, refuting the bandwagon and offering listeners something new. The singer, Eddy Shanks, also does a good job of injecting that soulful/rock element to the cut.
If you dig this cut, make sure you check the album.
