"On the verge of becoming America's next big indie rocker, evoking memories of Bob Dyland and post Srgnt. Pepper Beatles, Nico manages to create the fullest sound of any solo artist in recent memory. Easily the most musically intriguing artist to come along since Sufjan Stevens, and on track to become one of the great to emerge form the Echopark/Silverlake scene."
