Album Notes
"A fun record of folky tunes, acoustic guitar and vocals with that harmless but oh-so-quirky Barenaked Ladies-style emphatic vocal delivery and some pared-down They Might Be Giants-y moments."
- NOW Magazine (Toronto)
"Evokes images of a circus that just pulled into town and, in a way, this is Caswell's Traveling Show, with himself as ringmaster...If you enjoy hearing, via a unique prism, about some peculiar inhabitants of this world, this is your ticket."
- Kevin McCarthy

Nathan Caswell writes songs with a quirky intelligence and a wry sense of humour, but don't let that fool you. His work transcends straight comedy to incorporate heartfelt emotion and complex themes - weaving the thoughtful with the playful - simultaneously drawing laughter and giving pause.

Nathan was raised in the north Ontario pulp town of Thunder Bay, where he got his start performing as a musical comedian. He has lived in Toronto, where he was nominated for the Tim Sims Award for outstanding young comic, and in New York City, where he won the "Battle of the Funny Bands." Presently, he lives in Burlington, Vermont.

In his songwriting, Nathan brings to bear his eclectic background: He has worked as a wilderness canoe guide, a schoolteacher, and a purchasing agent for a fancy New York spa and beauty products company. He has traveled east and west across Canada and the United States, and north to the Yukon and Alaska.

Pulp Town is Nathan's full-length follow-up to his acclaimed 2003 EP, Einstein's Brain. It was recorded in the spring and summer of 2005, at Nathan's brother-in-law's place in Starrucca, Pennsylvania, and in Nathan's mother's basement in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Thank goodness for family.

Pulp Town is Nathan at his best!! A great mix of humour and sing-along type songs. Great CD for road trips. (Reminds me of sitting on the bus and listening to Nathan play his guitar!)

Classic Canadian Album
Pulp Town has such a variety of songs, from the comic Baboon Heart to the personal social commentary of shave your legs to the passive canadian revolutionary voice of I will not take it anymore to the title track that emminates living in a northern single industry town.
Musically diverse, solid guitar and vocal sound from a true student of accoustic guitar and quirky/catchy lyrics.
The second best $15 dollars I've ever spent.

I'm Not From Philly But Phuck It's Phunny!
A beautifully produced platter of well-polished fun stuff from Nathan Caswell.

It's Clever, It's Funny, It's full of songs that get stuck in your brain
I love it! All of the songs are catchy and I find myself just singing them out of the blue. Very good CD. If you like original music that is full of humor and has great rhythm to it, you will love it too.

Watch out! Nathan Caswell will force you to love him. I'm now proud to be a Nathan Caswell supporter and cheerleader. The music is outstanding the lyrics are delicious. He sucked me in with his song Caleb and from there it grew into true enjoyment of his musical personality. As quirky and funny as the music is, you get a sense of what kind of person Nathan is. If your 20 something you will love this. So, stop stealing music and actually spend $15 on Nathan Caswell's "Pulp Town."
