Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Nick Mulvey has been one of the undisputed breakthrough artists of 2014. With his début album, “First Mind” being nominated for the Mercury Prize and most of his many tour dates selling out, there haven't been many indie artists who have enjoyed as successful a year as him. Given the praise for the album, I decided to check it out for myself and was pleased to discover that the acclaim is well deserved, as “First Mind” is an intriguing, beguiling album which has been on heavy rotation on my stereo since I bought it back in August. Full of looping rhythms and rotating musical themes, many of the tracks have the common trait of being able to send the listener into an involved, almost trance-like state listening to them. Mulvey has an ear for an interesting rhythm, having studied music in Cuba and been part of the Portico Quartet, a group described as 'electronica meets future-jazz', and accentuating the beat is an important characteristic of his music, even when strumming or picking out a riff or melody on his guitar.

Although it may take the listener a few plays of the album to really get to grips with everything Mulvey is trying to communicate with this work, it soon becomes clear that there isn't a bad song on it. Indeed, there are more than a handful of thoroughly superb songs on “First Mind”. “Fever To The Form”, for example, is a corker, starting with a simple strummed guitar chord sequence, adding vocals and then slowly, instrument-by-instrument, becomes a powerful piece of music, yet still retains a pleasing mellow characteristic.

Former Jazz musician, Nick Mulvey is an Alt/Folk singer/songwriter from Cambridge England who was short listed by the BBC for "the sound of 2014".
He has studied a variety of cultural music and this is evident in his debut full length release "First Mind".
It's an album full of rhythmic acoustic guitar, gentle percussive beats and intelligent lyrics. A highly impressive first LP.

Loved it! Beautifully engrossing songs that combine global sounds with British sentiments of nature, love and relationships. Clever guitar skills, catchy tunes all topped off with his clear vocals.

Very nice debut. Very chilled, beautiful guitar playing and a voice that draws you in. Purchased on a whim after hearing Cucurucu and Meet Me There on Radio 1 and don't regret it one bit.

Whole album is great but April, Juramidam and I Don't Want To Go Home are highlights.

Highly recommended

After seeing him perform 'Fever to the Form' on 'Later with Jools Holland, I immediately bought the album.
I was not disappointed!
In a nutshell, think of this as my dream line-up for the best gig ever: Nick Mulvey, James Vincent McMorrow ('Early in the morning'), Fionn Regan ('The end of history'), Tom McRae ('Tom McRae').
That is the company this man keeps in my subconscious musical reference point mind.
I am so excited to see how this album 'beds-in' & 'pans-out' as the weeks & months and years pass. One thing I know already is that there is lots more for this album to give me, the mark of real quality, originality and unique genius - no overstatement here - sometimes you just know you have discovered something truly special.
Thank you Nick.

Bought this for a friend having discovered him on Spotify. Great album. A little like Jose Gonzalez, due to latin influence of his cuban background, though more interesting and contemporary arrangements. Fever to the Form and Cucurucu are my highlights, can't stop listening to them. Nice guitarist, his voice is a little weak, but I can get past that.

Mulvey's songwriting ability is phenomenal. Beautiful, intricate guitar work. Great voice. And he's not bad at humming either! This is a truly classy debut and very accessible in a low key, folksy, singer-songwriter style. Get it now - you'll be playing it all summer and probably far beyond. Catch him live if you can.
