Nurture - In The Middle of Everything

Nuture is from Athens, Georgia.  They have a sound that's not too common these days, but it's pulled off oh so well.

This seems to remind me very much some of the early to mid 90's bands like Elements of Need, Sleepy Time Trio and Lincoln.  You can also hear a bit of influence from more modern bands like Apart or Pianos Become the Teeth, particularly in the vocal presentation. The rhythms are pretty mid tempo with discordant guitars and screamed vocals that allow for some harsher melody.

There's not a low point among these four songs.  This is a consistent and well executed batch that seems to nail a perfect feeling and mood onto tape.
