Indie-pop artist Leslie Nuss grew up in South Suburban Chicago but after stints in New York and Chicago, currently resides in Northwest Indiana in the “semi-wilds” where she draws inspiration for her tranquil and beautiful songs. A seeker, a mystic and a dreamer, Nuss fully embraces her feminine side in her new ep, “The Album V, Part 1”

A stunning addition to the Leslie Nuss canon, this EP is her first offering since 2006’s “Round 3,” her fourth, full-length album. “Lost” opens with a majestic piano that instantly commands your attention. The music turns plaintive and yearning which is the perfect foil for the ethereal, dreamy vocals. If you ever wondered what a collaboration between Longpigs and the Cocteau Twins would sound like, well, this it. The song ends with notes falling from the piano like rain drops into a puddle. An achingly beautiful song.

 

The mood turns urgent with “The Subway.” The writing sounds like a lost classic from an alternative band inspired by Patti Smith and post-punk. But the sound is contemporary with the slightest hint of sixties psychedelia to keep listeners on their heels. “Glory Days” offers a deep breath. A weeping guitar pleads for your attention before Nuss delivers her most intimate lyrics. The percussion propels you deeper into Nuss’ web. The story concludes with “Writer,” a confession/inquisition delivered over an electronic lounge vibe. [The EP adds the bonus radio edit of lead off single, “Lost” — although why anyone would want that song to end sooner is a mystery.]
