Release date: 9/23/2014
A lot has changed for MR NASTI since his last album (s/t, 2012). The man himself, Nicholas Naioti, relocated to Fairfield, Iowa after experiencing the magic of the Iowa spirit while on tour. Armed with the confidence that only comes with residency in our fair state, he set forth in creating his most ambitious album to date, aptly titled Truth Sound. Featuring guest appearances by Iowa artists Anna Gebhardt (Annalibera), Ryan Stier & Joel Gettys (The River Monks), Adrien Daller (Trouble Lights), and Nashville’s Spoken Nerd, Truth Sound captures the drama, intensity, and joy of human existence over the course of 9 tracks, strapping lyrics like “Are we really anything more than a series of experiences filtered through a formula designed in our childhood guided by education and then converted to wisdom and stored into memories which exist in the wrinkles of a muscle which hides in the safety of our skulls? Is there value in opinions? Is there value in art? Do these songs come from my heart or are they nothing more than a mating call and what does it mean if I don’t know?” into a cart of pure love and shooting it down a sonic roller coaster that ends leaving the listener wide-eyed and maybe a bit terrified but wanting to ride again. And there’s no height limit, either.
The first run of Truth Sound will come on blue vinyl.

“…an aural kaleidoscope of synth sounds and beats mixed with a little acoustic instrumentation to add soulful dynamics,..Despite danceable, hooky beats, it’s the lyrics that give this album its genuine emotional wallop.” –Pulse
“Naioti writes music that makes you think—and hopefully even more than that, take action and apply it on your own terms. Truth Sound is a reflection of Naioti’s life philosophy: live honestly with yourself and the people around you and good things will follow” –Bandbombshell
