Terror Bird - All This Time
Nikki Nevver is at it again with her third album in three years (plus countless cassettes & 7”s).
Recorded at home over a period of 5 months, the 10 songs on “All This Time” document a period of intense emotional upheaval, a period wherein Nevver underwent major shifts in her personal life, rediscovered the solo recording process (previous albums having used live drumming and studio production) and married a raw, personal music with a straight-to-tape aesthetic most in-tune with her early recording experiences. The difference this time is that Nevver’s unique voice - at turns operatic and fragile, untutored and wearing its heart on its sleeve - serves as the perfect conduit for the emotional turmoil in the songs.
I return to more solo recording sounds just fine by me. I first fell in love with music from Nevver when I heard her Shadows in the Hall 7” (⬇↯☟↯⬇)from Atelier Ciseaux, a scant 4 track record that was on loop for most of that year. I’ve enjoyed all of her music since, but nothing has really grabbed on to me like that first 7” did, and maybe a return to more solo recording will bring back that sound I still long for. All This Time sounds like a step in the right direction.
