Album Stream: Nicole Atkins - <i>Slow Phaser</i>

Since her oustanding debut Neptune City in 2007, Nicole Atkins has continued to push boundaries creatively, pairing her warm, distinctive vocals with varied levels of instrumentation and never shying away from catchier, upbeat tunes. When Atkins announced her latest work Slow Phaser, we got a taste of the new material with the infectious “”Girl You Look Amazing. Like the song, the album itself employes catchy beats without lacking in lyrical depth.

Slow Phaser is a dark, desert disco rock album made during a year of wandering about in city alleys, broken shores and snowy Viking lands,” said Atkins. “I wanted to turn the lights up just enough to dance through the darkness.”

Slow Phaser is set for release on Feb. 4 via Thirty Tigers/ Oh’Mercy! Records, but you can stream the release in its entirety in the player below and pre-order the album here. You can also peek at Atkins’ upcoming tour dates at the bottom of the page.
