The Dispatch / Rock Island Argus previews MR NASTI and CHALAXY‘s show tonight at Rozz-Tox QC:
Iowa’s own Mr. Nasti, singer-songwriter Nicholas Sebastian Naioti, and the Nashville psych-pop band Chalaxy, will help you get a jump on the weekend tonight at 7 p.m. at Rozz Tox, 2108 3rd Ave., Rock Island. Admission is $5 to $10.
Mr. Naioti (from Fairfield, Iowa) is touring in support of his sophomore full-length Truth Sound, which came out last fall on Maximum Ames Records, exploring themes of life and death. “I’ve lived in three states, opened two food service businesses, lost my home to a flood, lost 2 close family members, and traveled heavily,” he said in a recent release.
Sean Moeller of Daytrotter has recorded stripped-down acoustic versions of Mr. Naioti’s lively disco tracks, describing his songs as “are examples of the joint frustration and exaltation of living.”
Pulse Magazine cover story called “Truth Sound” “an aural kaleidoscope of synth sounds and beats mixed with a little acoustic instrumentation to add soulful dynamics. Despite danceable, hooky beats, it’s the lyrics that give this album its genuine emotional wallop.”
