Nana Grizol - Ruth

Nana Grizol’s debut album Love It Love It was a triumph of exuberant pop-rock, energetic and beautiful regardless of whatever story whatever song was telling. The album opener “Circles ‘Round the Moon” could easily be called one of the best pop songs of 2008, though it only excels over the others for a darn impressive ability to elicit smiles and joy wherever it might be played. This week Orange Twin announced a follow-up: Ruth. Maybe, as the name and cover art suggest, we’ll get to hear Nana Grizol’s take on love!

From the Orange Twin website:

“Nana Grizol’s second album, ‘Ruth’ is a potent mix of revved up melodic folk punk, laced with intricate horn arrangements and sleazy, ripping guitars. It alternates between contemplative, beautiful folk arrangements and blasting rock and roll, often within the same song. ‘Cynicism’ kicks things off with a haunting finger picked guitar melody, mixed with a lush horn arrangement. ‘Galaxies’ then kicks things into high gear with it’s infectious swagger. ‘Black Box’ is an album highlight, with it’s urgent, tense backing of a lyrical rumination on mortality. ‘From Here’ opens with a jubilant, group vocal, then channels Neil Young’s Crazy Horse for a blazing,energetic guitar workout. ‘Sands’ ends the album with an ominous,horn backed swell that builds into an expertly crafted pop song, leaving off on a dark but hopeful note.”
