  • #8 – GOD IS IN THE TV – TOP 20 ALBUMS OF 2015

"an unambiguously terrific album"★★★★UNCUT

"Dense, dusty psychedelic Americana that makes the similarly inclined Tame Impala sound a little lightweight"★★★★Q

"Nash settles into a languid, hallucinatory groove that recalls mid-1970s Neil Young and the more recent mystic wanderings of My Morning Jacket …Cosmic Americana of the very highest order"★★★★½CLASSIC ROCK

"the real deal for a new generation"★★★★½INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

"cosmic poetry, crunching guitars and swooning pedal steel"★★★★MOJO

" second album is an absolute killer"John Mulvey – Editor, UNCUT

"very classy"★★★★ROLLING STONE FRANCE

"an amazing singer-songwriter"NPR / WEXT

"Israel Nash’s Silver Season is, without exaggeration, an absolute masterpiece."★★★★★GOD IS IN THE TV

"The hugely impressive widescreen vibes of Israel Nash’s Silver Season are a revelation"★★★★THE LINE OF BEST FIT

"intriguing, wild and ambitious"MAGIC, France

"superb"★★★★ROCK & FOLK, France

"an even more tremendous effort than its stellar predecessor… A lush, hazy set of stratospheric songs, warm vocal harmonies, organic vibes and swelling guitar wizardry, Silver Season stands easily among this year’s finest albums"TIDAL

"Last year Sturgill Simpson combined psychedelia and country music to great success. Israel Nash takes that idea to a tangential place, with results equally successful yet more likely attuned to those who reject anything with a twang."AUSTIN CHRONICLE

"Israel Nash’s Silver Season breathes a sense of freedom that can hardly be put into words but fits perfectly well into his art."CLASSIC ROCK Germany

"On tracks like "The Fire & The Flood," Nash lets his voice dip into its natural register, revealing an artist with his own vision. Lap-steel sunbursts abound, but they’re stretched to psychedelic ends and plunged into multi-instrumental jams that resemble Phosphorescent."NO DEPRESSION

"…work of heart-swelling beauty"KEXP

"Big skies, campfire wig-outs and CSNY harmonies all appear on another album from the man who’s absorbed absolutely every good thing about the past 40 years of North American music"MONOCLE




"Nash deftly mixes Americana, outlaw country and psychedelic rock"THE CURRENT

"A wonderfully free-spirited record with a melancholic undertone and catchy melodies, deeply rooted in tradition without sounding outmoded at all. This is how it should move on for the bearer of hope in Americana music."PIRANHA

"Nash’s new album Silver Season, represents an ambitious evolution in his mix of Americana, psychedelia and cosmic country-rock. If his last album, Rain Plans, was a refreshing spring shower, Silver Season unleashes a flood of expansive rock."WXPN

"one of those records you can truly immerse yourself in – Nash has created a gem of a record that deserves to be cherished."★★★★AMERICANA UK


"There is more texture, space and experimentation in just any one of the songs on ‘Silver Season’ than most bands could ever hope to realise over a whole career in music….the best album of his career so far….The sound these five guys make as a unit is incredible and far too rare."PENNYBLACK MUSIC

"The follow up to his acclaimed 2013 release Rain Plains, Silver Season is at once expansive and cinematic, yet intimate and introspective – a gorgeous project that reflects the group’s maturation and cohesiveness."BEST NEW BANDS

" is just shy of seven stunning minutes; kicking off with a doom laden intro before evolving into one of the finest examples of harmony filled, rolling, psych infused Americana that you’re going to hear this side of Christmas."MAD MACKEREL

"He returns again with Israel Nash’s Silver Season… transporting the listener through space and time using his experience around the country as inspiration."KCSN

"Israel Nash has a way of making music into movies. His songs are staged with luxurious swashes of sound, his vocals slowing unfolding stories steeped in daily life mysticism giving the simple steps we take a greater importance."THE ALTERNATE ROOT

"a collection of songs from the heart, propelled by haunting harmonica, gripping pedal steel and Nash’s silky voice."DALLAS MORNING NEWS

"Unbelievable. Gripka can not stop making brilliant music… A runaway hit and he becomes one of the greats."AFTONBLADET, Sweden

"The subtle funk of this type of classic American-folk rock is notoriously difficult to master… this band not only masters the genre, but bends it to their collective will."★★★★KEMPTATION

"An amazingly beautiful sound"NWT.SE, Sweden

"Stands in a class of its own"ROOTSY, Sweden

"Simply perfect"ADDICT-CULTURE, France

"A tremendous record"THE ROCK CLUB
