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.
