about

To truly understand the color and shape of Nice Nice, you must really see them live. Only then will you realize that every sound heard on this record, every intricate ployrhythmic layer is LIVE. There are no overdubs, and there are only two people in the band. But if you haven't been lucky enough to see them yet, then bear in mind those facts when throwing this one into your headphones. Born in Olympia, WA and now calling Portland, OR their home, guitarist Jason Buehler and percussionist Mark Shirazi meticulously warp hard funk, psych, soul, dub, angular rock and no-wave noise into a mechanical beast that can take you from dream to dance in 30 seconds flat. The instrumentation is relatively simple: guitar and drums. But it's the endless tap-dancing of effects pedals and rock solid dub beats that make every moment more magical than the last. Having played with everyone from Black Dice to Cex to Gold Chains - and thoroughly blowing their minds all the same - Nice Nice are that rare band that seems to equally appeal to the bedroom stoners and Friday night hipsters. Intimidating only in their technical prowess, Nice Nice don't smash their equipment, they smash their stereotypes. Bring it on.
