Stream Pick: Nicole Atkins

By: Laurie Gallardo

It was actually pretty awesome to spot a tweet from Britt Daniel via Spoon with a most enthusiastic exclamation. “I was lucky to get to contribute a small bit to the tracking of this new tune by Nicole Atkins,” he tweeted into the Twitterverse. “This is a hit!”

Hell yes, it is. “Captain” is one of the new swoony croons on Atkins’ forthcoming LP Italian Ice, now set for release May 29th, and a snippet which you hear on today’s AMM (click on the MP3 below, please). Atkins continues her live stream performance series today with Alone We’re Together, Part 3, featuring special guests Oliver Wood (The Wood Brothers), Erika Wennerstrom, and Lilly Hiatt. That’s at 6 p.m. this evening, Saturday April 11th. Get details when you join Atkins’ Patreon or send a donation through Venmo: @Natkinsband.
