STREAM NAP EYES’ DEBUT ALBUM WHINE OF THE MYSTIC

OUT JULY 10TH ON PARADISE OF BACHELORS (U.S.) & YOU’VE CHANGED RECORDS (CANADA)

Nap Eyes may be the best band you’ve never heard but not for long. After some spellbinding shows in the states with Ex Hex and Jacco Gardner at Northside Festival, Nova Scotia’s best kept secret is streaming their debut album, Whine of the Mystic, all week long ahead of its July 10th release on Paradise of Bachelors in the U.S. and You’ve Changed Records in Canada. Stereogum describes the album as “thoughtful” and “grounded.”

Recorded live to tape with no overdubs, Whine of the Mystic is equal parts shambling and sophisticated, with one eye on the dirt and one trained on the starry firmament, inhabiting a skewed world where songwriter, singer and rhythm guitarist Nigel Chapman’s odes to NASA and the Earth’s magnetic field coexist easily with songs about insomnia and drinking too much.

The band continues the second leg of their U.S. tour tonight in Portland playing with pals Monomyth, comprised of two Nap Eyes’ members, Josh Salter (bass) and Seamus Dalton (drums). A full list of tour dates is below.
