Jonny Nash presents his sixth solo album, a “personal folk” album that blurs discernible songs into ghostly, dream pop memories, coming across like Durutti Column, Brian Eno or Grouper.
We reckon ambient folk has to be a genre by now, right? Nash’s ‘Point of Entry’ is certainly a solid representation of the genre, drawing from his work with Gigi Masin and Young Marco as Gaussian Curve just as much as it does his recent run of trad folk-inspired plates. Nash’s gentle fingerpicking sits at the center of this suite of tracks, but it’s his use of delay and reverb that transforms his folk vignettes into cloudy ambience. ‘October Song’ is whisper-quiet and paper-thin, assembled from acoustic and electric guitar parts and electric piano twinkles that shimmer into the void, echoing Slowdive’s most moving moments.
His softly-spoken voice wisps over ‘All I Ever Needed’, blurring into the slide guitar wails and tightly delayed, Göttsching-inspired licks. On ‘Ditto’ meanwhile, Nash uses soft-focus synth arpeggios to underpin his jams, and on ‘Golden Hour’ he captures a West Coast new age glow with help from sax virtuoso Joseph Shabason. Perfect balmy gear for the summer nights.
