NANA GRIZOL - SOUTH SOMEWHERE ELSE VINYL (LTD. ED. RANDOM COLOUR)
LIMITED EDITION RANDOM COLOUR VINYL
Release Date: 3rd July 2020
The musical output led by Theo Hilton brings us their most important and relevant album in their long but sparse history. Hilton has always sung honestly and personally about growing up queer. But he now tackles the difficult but pertinent subject matter of his country's troubling and dark history in relation to growing up in the Southern State of Georgia being a white male - and the general ignorance of these serious issues, even from a queer liberal lens. The heavy subject matter is offset by classic Nana Grizol jangle-pop and classic Elephant 6 vibes (Neutral Milk Hotel, The Apples In Stereo etc...).
FFO: The Apples In Stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel, Radiator Hospital, The Mountain Goats
"On the Elephant 6-affiliated band’s 4th studio album, Theo Hilton’s (Defiance, Ohio) lyrics focus on experiences of queer white male socialization in the southern college town of Athens, GA. Robbie Cucchiaro (Music Tapes) adds trumpet and euphonium lines that echo both the golden era of Elephant 6 recordings and the brass bands of Theo’s current New Orleans home."
