DONCAT is Duncan Nielsen, a San Francisco based songwriter and performer with a penchant for rock, soul and folk stylings.
His songs draw from the deep history of California counter-culture music and discuss both the hope and uncertainty of the American dream in kaleidoscopic cynicism.
Upcoming release 'Preservation of The Spirit' is a brief 8 tracks, but delivers concise themes of artifice, modern myth, disintegrating social fabric, and, as the title namely outlines, preserving ones spirit when it's time to, well, face the music. Each song is a distinctly American narrative rife with poignant satire. In 'Once I Went to Las Vegas' Nielsen sings, "I'm smoking cigars in a cheap suit/eating foie gras in a restaurant, five stars/are these my lucky cards?" The album shifts casually between swirling, hypnotizing textures and reckless, loud, electric-guitar bravado - a tasteful blend and welcome progression from his earlier, folkier leanings.
