It's got a very serious Bowie/Space Oddity-meets-Dukes of
Stratosphear vibe to it... WXPN.

about the artist

Spontaneous music creation from the mind and spirits of Barney Cortez and Nick Bockrath. If you must know, Barney and Nick are musicians from Philly who have a rambling and impressive list of credentials. Together they are two parts of Nico's Gun. A CAPA and Uarts grad, Barney has worked with The Roots, Beanie Siegel, Melody Gardot, and more. Nick has mastered the art of appearing everywhere at once, working with American Babies, the Disco Biscuits, Morning Teleportation, Elevator Fight, and many more. Guests in the studio include Harry Zelnick, Eric Slick, Tom Hamilton, and David Butler. All tracks are recorded to 2 inch tape by Philly engineer Matt Schenck. The result - spontaneous music creation that explores the inner and outer worlds. '"I want people to know that we're experimenting and doing a lot of work, We're just trying to do something new and cool everyday, whether it fits into this box or that box." Barney Cortez.
