PSYCH-FOLK | Particle Kid

by

comment

Having toured with his legendary father Willie Nelson throughout his life, J. Micah Nelson is forging his own musical path under the moniker "Particle Kid." Creating a distinctive style of spacey folk soundscapes, Nelson has released dozens of albums, EP's, and singles since 2011. Currently based in Los Angeles, Nelson has a warm but subtly scraggly voice that reverberates over his acoustic guitar and various electronic textures; he uses vocal harmonies similar to those of Fleet Foxes, creating sound akin to a kaleidoscope of shiny astral projections. As Particle Kid, Nelson performs hauntingly poetic songs about life and death under the guise of cosmically melancholic electronic experimentation.

Particle Kid will perform on Monday, September 10, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 7:30 p.m. $10. 232-3230. abilenebarandlounge.com; particlekid.com.
