Niv Ast – Goodbye
I love artists who play all of the instruments on the record. I love artists who sound like they are playing for themselves. I love artists who sound like they have created their own little private world, and we are secretly allowed to peek inside, only for the duration of a song. The Israeli musician Niv Ast has released his second album, and it’s a treat of lo-fi, home-recorded low-key indie-pop. While listening, you might think for a fleeting second about The Beta Band, or even TV on the Radio. But it’s all Ast.
