Nomadic singer-songwriter Michael Nau is following up last year's breezy Mowing with a new album, Some Twist, out on Suicide Squeeze Records June 16. Some Twist's first single, premiering today, is called "Good Thing" and it is, indeed, a very good thing. Have you ever had a Painkiller cocktail (rum, 4 parts pineapple juice, 1 part cream of coconut, 1 part orange juice) on a sunny afternoon? That's what "Good Thing" sounds like: sweet, a little fuzzy, and good for the soul. Nau told The FADER via email that the track "was recorded as a six-piece band at Sound Loom in Burlington, VT." It's cold up there in Vermont, but "Good Thing" sounds oh so warm and calming. Nau continued, "This one's about learning on the fly to fly on." Listen below.
