Over the course of the past six years, Omaha, NB musician David Nance has released three full-length albums for labels Grapefruit and Ba Da Bing, a 7-inch, numerous cassettes, CDRs and unlicensed "cover albums".

His latest full-length is credited to the "David Nance Group" and features Nance alongside his recent hot-shit live band of fellow Omaha musicians.

"Peaced and Slightly Pulverized"'s sounds are alternatingly tender & brusque. The anthemic "Poison" with its fuzzed-out guitar riff that leans into a Crazy-Horsian guitar maelstrom and white-hot solo, to "Ham Sandwich"; a blisteringly frantic rant about a lunchtime torment - uncomfortable in its directness.

Side one closes with the epic seven and a half minute "Amethyst"; an emotional odyssey with Nance & Schroeder strangling their guitars into a twin-guitar, barbed-wire duel.

The album's centerpiece is "In Her Kingdom", an emotive ballad that fades into view with a plaintive guitar strum that ebbs and flows with a ris ing tide of swelling guitars, it's riffs gilding the melody & adding flecks of gold to Nance's tale of poverty and grace.

The album closes with "Prophet's Profit"'s biting commentary on false idolatry utilizing the group's not-so-secret weaponry of Nance and Schroeder's six-string simpatico to bring the listener home.
