Nik Freitas (Future Farmer Records?) has added a couple demo’s to his website. These are in addition to tracks available from his 2005 self released ep Missing Bones. The demo’s are more stripped down and acoustic than his full band sound (under the moniker Nik Freitas and The Head Gates) but I like them as much/more.
Nik Freitas succeeds with a mix of Beatles inpired rock, Dylanesque vocals/harmonica and even the occasional Jeff Buckley-like vocal workouts.
