Texas singer-songwriter and guitarist Israel Nash is a huge Neil Young fan, and he’s not afraid to admit it, says NPR affiliate WXPN’s music critic Bruce Warren. When Nash released his 2013 album Rain Plans, the Young and Crazy Horse comparisons abounded; Nash (no relation to Graham) and Young share not only certain vocal qualities, but also a similar flair for epic guitar rock.

Lap-steel sunbursts abound, but they’re stretched to psychedelic ends and plunged into multi-instrumental jams that resemble Phosphorescent.”
