Music Review: Nathan Gaunt at the National Underground

Who: Nathan Gaunt, an Australian musician.

What: Show at the National Underground.

When: Er, he played in August, and I’m just now getting around to posting this. So much for deadlines.

Impressions: Nathan Gaunt sings with a smooth, bravely itinerant voice that flies across the landscape of your hearing like a light-trailing hawk painting sky art. His guitar playing matches the sensual vocal acrobatics with ease: Fingers dance the fret, pinning the strings with impressive speed and precision.

Video warning: The contemptible audio recording quality of my G1 phone cannot entirely mask the impressive qualities of this artist’s performance, but a serious compromise is unavoidable with such limited equipment. Watch the footage below with that in mind:

Buy: Flying Flashlight Amazon store: Halcyon Dazed, Headlights on the Hills, See Ya Later, Space Cowboy.
