Salim Nourallah - Beautiful Noise: MAGNET Jan/Feb 2006
Like the smoking rising from an ashtray, Beautiful Noise is about what's been left behind to burn. Fittingly, Nourallah's cigarette-addled voice comes searching for answers. Though backward-looking, the Texas songwriter is always forward-thinking, collecting trinkets and locales from the past and translating them into alt-country snapshots. A ghost is reborn within these tales, and its silhouette lingers near the books that were never read.
