Nik Furious: Brilliant Shower
Enter the instrumental. Brilliant Shower is a 13-track trip through the conscious and subconscious minds of Nik Furious. The music is dipped in electronic funk and lightly dusted with rock, surf, jazz, and experimental sounds.
This album was recorded in Pittsburgh, Brooklyn, and Paoli, PA over the course of 5 years from 2004-2009. I intended for most of the songs to become hip hop beats, but they ended up being too complicated or unorthodox to comfortably sit in the back.

The album cover was patiently designed by Shawn Atkins. And this music was made better by the support of Justique Woolridge, Ed Marino, Josh Kobylarz, Neal Shyam, Scott Niekum, and everybody else who generously gave me feedback throughout the entire creation process.
