Particle Kid


(Teaching Machine)

Release date: Aug 28, 2012

Micah Nelson [Particle Kid] comes from a lineage of musical and cultural pioneers. Growing up touring with his father Willie Nelson and his brother Lukas Nelson, he has always been surrounded with vibrant and authentic creative spirits. Both a talented visual artist and iconoclastic musician, he has performed on shows like Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and at events like SXSW, FarmAid, Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Neil Young's Bridge-School Benefit. He has showcased his artwork and music in countless other venues, spanning the creative spectrum, from his involvement in the psych-punk band Insects vs. Robots, to idiosyncratic Charango performance, to cymatic visualizations of dancing water molecules.

Micah's new release, Shapes, is a personal series of songs written and recorded in his mobile solar-powered a/v laboratory/van, aptly named 'Vincent Van-Gogh.' His playful and deeply moving approach to song-writing is embodied in seven tracks, equal parts hyper-textural ventures through inner-dimensions and somber lo-fi lullabies. Shapes represents Micah's first professional release under his pseudonym Particle Kid.
