New album from acclaimed producer and R&B/soul revivalist Nick Waterhouse! This is perhaps his most reflective album, employing all of the mature production techniques learned throughout his professional career while retaining a viscous edge that allows it to land with colossal impact — more raw, heavy and overtly confrontational than anything he’s made before.

Nick Waterhouse was recorded at the finest working studio in Los Angeles, Electro Vox Recorders, and co-produced by Paul Butler (The Bees, Michael Kiwanuka, Devendra Banhart), the master of all things warm, rich and woolly. Nick’s songs here are personal — intimate, direct, yet still malleable enough for listeners to suffuse their own life stories into the mix. The album is thick with talented players, including Andres Rentaria, Paula Henderson and the staggering, howling saxophone of Mando Dorame. The lyrics are suspicious, outraged and, at times, very vulnerable. Waterhouse uses an economy of words to deliver complex, coded messages. He offers up equal parts criticism of the time we live in and innate human flaws.

He’s four albums in, but it makes sense that this specific record is the one that takes his name. You can really hear Nick on this one – his mind, passion and focus.

*Also available in store on 12″ vinyl LP.
