elvis depressedly - "n.m.s.s" (Video)

Elvis Depressedly is a musical trio fronted by moody minstrel Mat Cothran. A few years ago I was praising his melancholy compositions via a different pseudonym: Coma Cinema. The transition from one name to another has been far from night and day. Cothran's songwriting and recording style has remained roughly the same; however, I'd say this new Elvis Depressedly song is still worthy of your attention.

The distant vocal melody and calming string accompaniment on "n.m.s.s" fit really nicely against the song's gentle acoustic guitars and ambient synthesizers. The song is emotionally gripping, but sonically relaxing at the same time.

Look for this track and others on the forthcoming Elvis Depressedly album titled New Alhambra. It'll be dropping via Run For Cover Records in 2015.

[edit: Some of my Twitter followers are telling me that, in fact, Coma Cinema is not dead. I guess Mat brought the project back without me being aware of it. Yay.]
