Sight & Sound: Nikki LaneMusic // Friday, 07 Mar 2014
On March 13th & 14th, in Austin, Texas, Juxtapoz and Brixton will be presenting a special musical showcase, "Sight & Sound," at the Yellow Jacket Social Club, featuring two huge line-ups including the newly reformed Coachwhips, Reigning Sound, Fresh & Onlys, Natural Child, Together Pangea, Nikki Lane and more. Nikki Lane turns the vulnerable singer-songwriter stereotype on its ear, crafting songs that crucify ex-boyfriends and have no problem with one-night stands as long as she can bolt town right after. Her cooing-yet-brutal vocals are a perfect fit with an aching, mournful guitar. Her upcoming album, tentatively titled Seein’ Double—produced by, yes, Dan Auerbach—is one of Nashville’s most anticipated releases. “My songs always paint a pretty clear picture of what’s been going on in my life, so this is one moody record,” she says. “There’s lots of talk of misbehaving and moving on.”
