After the outrageously good and criminally ignored On Sunset, there was talk of a new Nicholas Krgovich album that completed a trilogy of “LA albums” (the other being On Cahuenga). Which sounds cool in theory. But as it turns out, On Cahuenga is made entirely of On Sunset demos and The Hills is a mix of off-cuts and instrumental versions of On Sunset tracks.
Which are great n’ all. But if you were hoping for Krgovich to get the kind of recognition he deserves after years of being criminally ignored for his work with P:ano and No Kids The Hills isn’t going to turn any heads.
All the same, Sunset Tower is one of his arch, slow burning odes to a city that he seems to care for, but that doesn’t seem to care for him back.
