Nick Faye Explores The West

It would be inappropriate of me to review this album – I’ve got a lady who sings on it a few times – but lemme draw people’s attention to a new disc from a local boy.

Nick Faye has just released The Last Best West, an eight-song album he cut with Byron Chambers. It sounds good by me; it’s got a Greg MacPherson feel to it that I dig. You can download the album over at Nick Faye’s Bandcamp page, at the “Name Your Price” option.

  1. Nice! Just checked a few tracks that they’re streaming from the website. Great stuff. I’m only passingly familiar with Greg MacPherson, so I can’t really comment on that comparison. To be honest the first thing that jumped into my mind was the Weakerthans. Not musically, though they can do that stripped down sound too, but in the quality and poetry of the lyrics.
    I’m also loving the reference to Sifton’s famous marketing slogan for the Prairies in the album title.
    Now just a quick question for the masses — what’s a reasonable rate to pay on the pick your own price option? I don’t want to be a douche, for obvious reasons, but at the same time, I’ve got to accept that I’m a print journalist who received his last raise in late 2002.

  2. Nick Faye is the man. One of Regina’s finest artists! The new album is outstanding.
