O Nod O Moon captures Nod at a rejuvenation point in their storied career as indie-rock castaways. Like a splash of fresh water on your face after working a long, hot, irritating day, Nod delivers you to a forgotten freedom. Lyrical themes on O Nod O Moon include a wide range of subject matter, including work theft, the moon, divorce, money problems, and love. Keeping with Nod tradition, the recordings here vary from plush and polished (well, for Nod) studio recordings ("Syddy", "Feeling Kinda Pouty") to the bare, first take, mumbling of pretty song ideas ("Old Man Waiting for You"). Fans of Nod will love this release for it's twisted blues, off-kilter tunings, and slippery pop melodies. New fans, many of whom were not yet born when Nod first formed on the beaches of Lake Ontario in 1990, should prepare for aural initiation. This is pure Nod.
