What people have said about Doubles —

“Nugent smartly focuses on developing a pair of immersive environments that are continuously compelling for more than 20 minutes at a time. He nails it.”
– Grayson Currin, Pitchfork, 7.7 rating.

“Nugent’s already mastered dynamics tone and articulation. He introduces each new melody or change of emotional tenor at precisely the right moment to keep you on the edge with him, and his tunes are sturdy and lovely things […] Mighty good.”
– Bill Meyer, The Wire

“Sixes & Sevens” begins soli with light percussion, but at 3:09, the band enters and suddenly we’re snatched off the curb for a cinematic drive. With drums, woodwinds, viola, brass and organ, the 24-minute track studies a soul in rapturous torrent.”
– Lars Gotrich, NPR

“It’s just another example of Nugent’s Gemini-like ability to weave in and out of opposing forces with finesse. He has no confusion about his ability to do so, playing with light and dark, buoyant and sinking, fast and slow [..] He is undoubtedly an acoustic master”
– Kate Hensley, Dusted

“An ambitious but unquestionably rewarding record – and one crucially devoid of pretension, too.”
– Lauren Murphy, The Irish Times, 4 stars

“Doubles is a complete joy to listen to, ambitious and fulfilling. It sits comfortably alongside the better works of Ben Chasny and Jack Rose, Jim O’Rourke’s guitar-centric albums, and John Fahey’s latter-day experiments on Table of the Elements.”
– Stephen Bush, Brainwashed

“What he’s constructed with these meandering, yet never sprawling narrative pieces is never mere virtuosity or showiness: there is coherence, power and emotional depths within these sinewy lines and forms. […] It suggests so many potential avenues you can’t help but be excited for what Nugent might produce next.”
– Matt Poacher, The Limina

Eyes Like Mirrors – “Pastel” [MUSIC]

Eyes Like Mirrors

Eyes Like Mirrors formed as a trio in Johannesburg in 2008, creating their own blend of post rock music.  Focusing on guitar driven instrumentals, the band was inspired by acts such as Explosions in The Sky, Mono and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.  In 2010 Eyes Like Mirrors expanded to include Ben Rausch who used a keytar to trigger and manipulate visuals during live performances.  Check out their track Pastel, or if you’re in South Africa their EP Crusades is in stores now!
