Speculator: Nice by alteredzones
As Nick Ray told Altered Zones:
My last release, Lifestyle, was conceived and produced as a cassette LP. I tried to create and include as many analog recording artifacts as possible, in addition to samples of other artists’ work recorded using a variety of methods…Nice was recorded using exactly the same equipment with a much different intent. Only two songs on this record use samples…The record is called “Nice” because I tried to make it a more concise articulation of the kinds of songs that I am interested in writing.
