Lt Dan Buckley here with my last DJ pick for the month of July! This time it’s Israel Nash. His new album Lifted is in stores now and “Rolling On” is one of my favorite songs on this record.
Texas’ genre-bending rock ‘n’ roller Israel Nash presents his latest long play Lifted. It is a modern day hippie-spiritual, a tonic for those needing to put aside the mess of the daily grind. With luscious beds of strings, horns and well adorned towering walls of sound, Lifted finds Nash continuing his tradition of creating a sonic experience of feeling that is at once both vast and intimate – soaring and untamed at times, placid and sincerely personal at others.
Lifted opens with an extended instrumental introduction, preparing the listener to get comfortable and settle in for the journey ahead, before blossoming into “Rolling On.” It’s a manifesto, a hearty breath of rock goodness, clean air for all that follows. A sing-along anthem of urgency, encouraging one to let go of yesterday and spring from the traps of worry in order to move onward and upward – rolling on, right here and right now. Give it a listen below and let us know what you think!
