Nicole Kidman - s/t (Folktale Records)

People will automatically tag this music as a “Casiotone For The Painfully Alone” knock off. However, to me it feels a lot more sincere than that. It’s pretty raw summer bummer music. Jon Barba is the man behind Nicole Kidman and I have seen him play a few times in Arizona and parts of California. This  is really good lo-fi pop.

No matter how you twist it, this is some on point 80’s Yamaha keyboard dream pop. While this cassette is long out of print, it’s a nice looking Folktale Records release.

I suppose this whole post is jut meant to raise awareness about Nicole Kidman and Folktale Records, some quality goods from California.
