Particle Kid 8.14.19

On the road to the release of his new record Window Rock, Micah Nelson, AKA Particle Kid has had mentors of mythological status. A member of Neil Young’s backing band, Promise of the Real, Micah has absorbed Young’s audiophilic attention to detail in each track on his new record’s nine tracks…as well as the legend’s noise-weaving guitar wizardry. The beautifully curated chaos Micah honed under Young’s tutelage is bolstered by his expert song-craft which one can’t help but think was passed down from his father, Willie Nelson.
