CD of the Week from Nick Waterhouse
Nick Waterhouse grew up in the ocean side city of Huntington Beach, known for it's surf culture. He established his musical sensibilities in the middle of the burgeoning southern California Psych-Garage scene, while retaining his fondness for American Rhythm & Blues. His new record is titled Holly. As NPR has noted, Nick Waterhouse "draws from the classic sound of '50's American pop with a distinctive voice of his own, shouting and growling with infectious vigor."
