My air cooler was nothing special - an Arctic Freezer 13 Pro.

A large part of me still thinks that their first album "Nickel Creek" from back in 2000 is their best, which features a more traditional sound.

They definitely made a move away from the traditional with This Side, and I felt that they maybe headed back in that direction… Read more
