ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"It was early winter 04. I had recently finished a stint in the Coast Guard, and I was wandering around a bit. I was haunted by a Tennessee Williams play, and headed south with a large white envelope filled with a notebook and scattered notes on scraps of paper. The notes began to rise into songs officially in a seedy motel in Tupelo, MS--on my way to the Florida panhandle. The album was written and recorded in a week thanks to the gracious hospitality and help of Chris and Gileah Taylor. The album was released on Grey Hat Records."

This album gave me shivers for obvious reasons and reasons I can't quite pin-point. Beautiful and mysterious. Thank you.

Haunting and lovely
This album is a treasure. Instrumentally and lyrically beautiful. Haunting and lovely. Gileah’s vocal compliment Quintin’s and give the album a very rootsy feel.

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


There's a breathtaking emptiness to the songs of Quintin Nadig. With a feeling of silenced anguish and squelched desperation, stirring beneath a layer of striving for hope and possibility, his songs wander and drift through acoustic-electric textures, seeming to marry acoustic folk and almost bluegrass-inspired picking with emo and dream pop inclinations. His feel for the sonic world and its intersection with the acoustic one is stunning; suddenly, the two worlds feel inseparable and cut from the same cloth, suddenly the dryness of acoustic guitar leads effortlessly into the washing, looping wetness of electric. "Slip Songs' takes its listeners, with a rare talent, through lucid worlds of atmosphere and emotion.

beautiful, ethereal stuff
This is beautiful, dreamy, other-worldly stuff - just a shame it doesn't go on longer!

Inferno

Conceptual, derpessing gem.
"The most common theme in all art is love. It's the most treasured human emotion. With love comes the relationship and this is the concept Quintin Nadig portrays on "Slip Songs." The album tells a story of two lovers from beginning to end- from happiness, to pain, to finally acceptance. Soft, often arpeggio guitars and banjo, an accordion, autoharp, piano and occasionally the female voice of Gileah Taylor accompany the eerie, hushed, range-less voice of Nadig..."

"...Nadig delivers exactly what he intended--to rip the listener´s heart out with a very mellow and conceptual album ."
-T.J.

I live 6 miles from where Nick Drake lived and died, and I think he would of loved this album.
The sparseness and emptyness are what make this a great record, along with a voice that is crying out pure pain.
Genius stuff!
