Liam Finn’s music has always existed in its own distinct reality of other-worldly arrangements and blissfully catchy hooks. His debut album, ‘I’ll Be Lightning,’ earned Artist to Watch accolades from The Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone, Spin, Stereogum and more, along with performances on Letterman and Ferguson. Entertainment Weekly hailed his “effervescent choruses [and] swooning harmonies,” while Billboard called the record a “charmer.” He toured the world, sharing stages with the likes of Eddie Vedder, The Black Keys, and Wilco along the way, and in 2011, he released his follow-up, ‘FOMO,’ to further critical acclaim, with SPIN saying the album “blends sophisticated melodies and wistful vocals with masterful authority.” ‘The Nihilst,’ his third solo record, builds on all those strengths, pushing his songwriting and arrangements into more refined and mature dimensions.
