San Francisco based psych soul musician, Mark Nelsen has been embarking on a unique musical journey with his new project, Mark Nelsen Band. Nelsen, who is best known for his work as the lead guitarist and vocalist for the San Francisco based heavy psych ensemble, Electric Shepherd has been celebrated for his stellar songwriting and potent psych soul riffs.
We're excited to premiere his new single entitled, Screwball (Change The Weather), which consists of two tracks: Screwball (Change The Weather) and Takes Two.
This single sounds a bit different from Nelsen's previous solo album which exuded a folk psych ambiance. Screwball (Change The Weather) is a heavy, almost rockabilly single, that is fast paced and resembles tones that borrow from AC/DC, with touches of pop, psych rock and metal within them. These songs should definitely be taken seriously because he has proven to be a great songwriter and arranger time and time again from his previous releases and live shows. Nelsen went down a new avenue compositionally, but it works and we like it.
You can catch Mark Nelsen Band live TONIGHT at The Deli Magazine Sponsored Event at DNA Lounge (upstairs) featuring headliners, The Dollyrots with local riot grrrl rockers, The Shanghais, and anti folk, singer/songwriter Whorhaigh Kayado. -je
