A rare live performance from the man who essentially is Rivulets, Nathan Amundson. Hailing from Minneapolis, MN, Nathan has been making sparse, fragile and haunting music since the turn of the century that draws comparison with Codeine, Nick Drake, Will Oldham, Red House Painters and fellow Minnesotans, Low. In fact, his 2 albums – 2002's “r i v u l e t s” and 2003's “Debridement” – both feature Alan and Mimi from Low, and were released on their own Chairkickers Union label. On record, Nathan's contemplative voice and folky acoustic guitar are backed with ethereal, sometimes barely audible organ, strings and glockenspiel stolen from a space rock ballad. Highly recommended for fans of Secretly Canadian stuff.
