Psycho-seduction and radio squeal make it real in the Afro Nick’s new tune “Don’t Waste My Time”.
With unabashed verve, the AN squeeze jam band juice all over the spectrum.
Running on rings round a planet, cold.
Space is a freeze of the heart, you’re told.
Sold and enslaved to a place out of sight…
You’re right. They’re wrong. She’s warm night after night.
“I’m here just, just for one night.”
With a heaping helping of the psychedelic swing that so defines their sound, the Afro Nick grind guitars like gears over a glowing-hot groove. This time, though, there’s a hint of subtlety to their tone that takes a simple song over the edge to elegant excellence.
In “Don’t Waste My Time” the live, stage-side feel rings plain and powerful, persuading you to pass into its dimension. Touches of outside influence seem to sift into this track; Queens of the Stone Age enter the open instrumentals and the Doors materialize in moments of enmeshed vocal and instrument synchronicity.
Sweeping clean over you like a cloud of cosmic dust, “Don’t Waste My Time” folds time in wrinkles, seeming somehow shorter than its roughly 3-minute play time. Guess it warrants a replay, eh? Have a listen today.
