Album Notes
Night Light is the seventh full length solo album - and eighth solo release overall - by the versatile and endlessly inventive Tom Hedrick. This time out, Tom shares a more varied palette of sounds and styles without losing his emphasis on songs with strong melodic structures.

Songs like "Kate!", "Mardi & Her Jet Pack" and "Early Morning Man" are high energy, punkish songs that still manage a sing-a-long, hooky vibe that begs for repeat listens. Avant-garde and jazz stylings are evident on a number of the tracks, particularly "Washboard", an outright surreal opus that moves from a blue-grass party straight into Zappa/Beefheart-esque soundscapes that lead into a sonic abyss of pure delight.

Shades of Big Star Third can be heard on the abstract "A Song I Didn't Want", while other songs like "Church Key" and "Crown Vic" are straight up pop-rockers.

Night Light concludes with the heartfelt tribute "For Miss Brooks", as touching a song as Hedrick has ever composed or sung. Alongside his excellent 2013 power pop album The Man In The Brown Suit, Nightlight is as fine a record as can be heard in Tom Hedrick's extensive discography, and well worth adding to your collection.

what a great record
I love Tom Hedrick's works. When I read about his influences, and read his lyrics, I think the kind of music I love lives on. I specially love this album because of his versatility, Tom powerful tracks, power rock style songs or experimental songs. "After Dark in The Park", "Early Morning Man" or "Kate!" are masterpieces. The whole album is a gem.
