The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs created by the Nazca people thousands of years ago in the desert in southern Peru. Though the lines are shallow, made by simply removing the surface’s reddish pebbles to uncover the whitish ground beneath, they have been preserved for thousands of years because the plateau on which they are etched is dry, windless and geographically isolated. Likewise Michael Lovett’s work as NCZA/Lines is similarly indelible in spite of its seemingly delicate and superficial nature, his falsetto vocals tracing out lyrical shapes across a roseate and peaceful plain of lush arrangements and synth-pop melodies.



Spilt Milk
Much like the sacred liquid that has transformed so many spindly children into grown-up hunks and babes, Amsterdam’s Spilt Milk also does a body good. This drone-folk quintet takes one part Mountain Goats acoustic guitar strums, one part Velvet Underground, sprinkles in some highly literate lyrics, drizzles some female lead vocals as soothing and sweet as honey over the top, then hits blend, whipping up a Spilt Milkshake that brings all the boys and girls to the yard.
