Michael Nau is no musical newcomer, having been a member of Page France and later forming Cotton Jones with his wife, but his latest release is solo Nau and that is brand new. Mowing is a collection of songs written in various cities and settings that somehow all emit vibes on the same chill wavelength. The melodies are sticky and difficult to shake, which is welcomed because you want them to linger anyway. Most of the tracks have a sit/walk tempo, making Mowing an excellent record to throw on this spring to get reacquainted with the sun and outside air. Listen to Michael Nau’s “Winter Beat” above, and be sure to give the entire album a listen for maximum unwind.
