Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

NINO MOSCHELLA

Boom Shadow

2009-06-01

Out of Oakland, CA, multi-instrumentalist Nino Moschella gives us a taste of his domestic life on this, his sophomore album. Being married with a new baby daughter, many of the songs here are about such things as tough relationships (We Fight) and his daughter (Stella). Don't let the personal lyrics fool you, though. This album rocks with plenty of neo-soul funk. Nino, having started out as a drummer, offers plenty of interesting percussive sounds. Check out "Sleep", "Running", or "New Orleans" for the best examples of what can be done with a drum kit and a desire to do anything but a pedestrian beat. I can't wait to see what this guy does next, but I'll be happy to listen to this in the mean-time. Rebecca Ruth
