Nelson Bragg
Day into Night
Side B Music

Nelson Bragg has been part of Brian Wilson's' band recently and unsurprisingly his new album is filled with melodic pop. It's even been divided into two sides like in the vinyl era. He clearly has a gift for making this kind of music and not make it seem quaint.

"Tell me I'm Wrong" is a pretty uptempo song with a sunny vibe. He covers George Harrison's "Dark Sweet Lady" and pins a sequel to the Beach Boys "Caroline No". He's not as in thrall to his influences as this might imply. Bragg can stand on his own feet and pens impeccable pop. He's a clear example that this kind of music has a place today too.
