MICHAEL NHAT AT PEHRSPACE
When Silver Lake’s Michael Nhat says his main motivating forces are “loneliness, rejection and guilt,” he’s not being glib or pretentious. In a recent interview, Nhat explained that he survived a plane crash as a child, though his mother didn’t, and he subsequently ended up in foster care. Life with an abusive stepbrother and racist adoptive family followed, so it’s no wonder the man’s songs sport titles like “Falling Down a Bottomless Pit,” “All I Hear Is Silence” and “Replacing Their Owners [sic] Heads.” Nhat is releasing his third album in just over a year on Tuesday via I Had an Accident Records. Dubbed Just Plain Dying, it sports a sound that could only be described as “classic Nhat” — an inimitable mix of beats that ranges from spare and light to black and clanging, and his unusual raps, which pour forth in an urgently percussive tumble. Fans of Busdriver, Shapeshifters and early Anticon take note. (Chris Martins)
