As reported yesterday, Nico Muhly has been written up in several British publications. Well, they're not the only ones; as the US release of Mothertongue approaches, America's paying attention, too. The Seattle Weekly, in anticipation of Nico's upcoming 802 Tour with Doveman and Sam Amidon, wrote a brief piece alluding to Nico's previous work with musical stalwarts Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Björk while describing Muhly's arrangements as "intimate and spare...earthy [and] romantic." A lot of kudos packed into such a small entry.
While others are busy praising Muhly's music, what is the man himself up to? Eating, apparently. In The Fader, Muhly chops, boils, occasionally munches, and expresses his frustration with Whole Foods elitism. Watch, perhaps learn a new dish, and enjoy.
