LSTN // Nightlands Shares “Nico” Track – Three Versions Available

Nightlands follows up release week by sharing the original, instrumental and vocal-only versions of “Nico,” a track off the recently released Oak Island. Premiering at ArtInfo, the song is one of the more experimental ventures off the record. You can stream all three versions above! While listening, head over to ArtInfo to read the new interview with the ever so eloquent Dave Hartley.

“I kept trying that until I could know exactly what speed to change the tape machine to, to make my voice warped. So when it sounds like I’m singing higher and higher and higher, the tape is slowing more and more. I got pretty experimental with the tape machine.” – Dave Hartley on “Nico”

See Nightlands live! Dave takes the stage at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory on February 12! Then it is off to tour the rest of the States in March! Dates HERE!

“Rare is the piece of art (and even rarer the comedy album) that covers this much emotional ground, getting to the point that its sometimes unclear whether the tears are due to laughing so hard or just from the seemingly hopeless pain of it all. Besides being joyously engaging, Notaro’s resounding strength makes this album something that lifts the soul of the listener as much as it entertains.” – TIME

Basketball & Rock ‘n’ Roll: Dave Hartley Interviews Paul Shirley

You all know Dave Hartley as The War On Drugs’ bass player and for his solo endeavor, Nightlands, but today, we refer to him as the great interviewer. Dave’s a bit of a basketball enthusiast and his love for and knowledge of the game has led to his Death Dunk column in Impose Magazine. His most recent installment includes an interview with the ever-animated Paul Shirley, a former NBA pro. With a tag-line of “The NBA bench-warmer and author can’t get fired again from ESPN, but tries in our interview,” Dave never falters from asking the hard questions.

In their lengthy chat, Dave and Paul swap questions concerning both basketball and music. Paul reveals himself to be somewhat of a rarity in the NBA, sharing his feelings of isolation that led him to seek out music. Read the full interview HERE.

Want to know what Paul Shirley thinks of The War On Drugs? Sure yah do. He tells you all about it in Music For Men: The War On Drugs.

Stay tuned for some exciting Nightlands news!!!

For our last bit of news: Tig Notaro received lots of love from Lance Armtstrong in his recent interview at Texas Monthly.Titled Lance Armstrong Talks Candidly About Cancer and Comedy, the interview spins off of Tig’s Largo set and the way she shared the news of her breast cancer with the world. It’s a beautiful piece. Read it HERE.

“It’s incredibly brave. It was this weird collision of her being totally candid, and open and honest and an audience that thought they were coming to a comedy show and didn’t know quite what to think or how to react. And pretty far into it, a lot of them still seemed to think it was an act. But, to me, that’s all she was doing – telling her story, detail by detail.”Lance Armstrong
