Zac Nelson – Towards Your Own Worlds

The key word in the title of Zac Nelson’s suitably out-there new tape on Field Hymns is the last word – that’s plural: worlds. This tape is one that occupies an enormous amount of celestial territory from bouncy, driving synth pop to slow jams and mind-spinning drone. Nelson’s music, however, isn’t all chameleonic; all six tracks on this album bare his unique sonic stamp. Pieces are connected by shared thematic and melodic references, making the album a unified and powerful whole. In other words, even if we’re dealing with several words here, they are all orbiting around the same strange, pulsating sun.
