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.

I first saw the singer on the Cambridge folk festival and fell in love with his voice and music.
But the CD was not up to the expectation I would have liked. I think I would have liked to hear his voice more.

I do not normally review CD's as they are so subjective - but I am making an exception in this case because it is by far and away the best CD I have bought in ages! Real chill out music, interesting instruments and fantastic voice.

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.

In a word - Brilliant!

Deep, thoughtful, well produced.

I wasn't sure what to expect, and was instantly taken in by the vocal, and also the music itself. As and aspiring accoustic guitarist, if not maybe a singer, if I could aim to emmulate anyone it would be what's on this album.

Ok so every albumn has a couple of songs one does not, ummm agree with completely. Well this is no exceptions, however, saying that Nick Mulvey has a great voice, the sounds are fantastic (if you like guitar etc) and this is very listenable to album, I have my favourites and love travelling in the car with this ...quite loud in fact.
So yes, hats off to Mr Mulvey as a great albumn, loved it and loved the fact that I just caught him singing on the TV from Glastonbury, just so pleased to have heard him live so to speak.
Beautiful compliations and well, just good for the soul, ears and heart really.

:o) xx

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.
