Nathan Mongol Wells (from the album From a Dark Corner available on State Fair Records) (by Danny McCloskey)
Presenting the sound of outsider Americana, Nathan Mongol Wells releases From a Dark Corner. Frontman for Ottoman Turks, Nathan Mongol Wells self-deprecates as self-assessment with the tears-in-your-beer ballad “Take You for a Ride”. He spits out words to stay onboard the runaway rhythms of “Road to Hell”, keeping the destination in the GPS for “Rather Go to Hell”, and quieting the melody for tender memories of “In Years”. Nathan Mongol Wells tells honky tonk tales, a master of staging scenarios that play against a Country Rock’n’Roll band beat.
Produced by John Pedigo, and co-produced by Ottoman Turks bandmate Joshua Ray Walker, From a Dark Corner watches the world pass by from the hidden shadows of an poorly-lit dive bar. The smell of stale beer lets up a little when Nathan Mongol Wells ventures outside for “First Day It’s Warm” as he raises a toast to “Honest Drinking” while From a Dark Corner boards a traintrack groove to head down to “Juraez”, opening its doors when the album’s first cut welcomes everyone in with the Back Alley Jazz rhythms of “Beulah Land”. by Danny McCloskey)
