Live Review: Jordie Lane + Liz Stringer + Ryan Nico - Northcote Social Club (29.11.12)

When I first heard that Ryan Nico was the first act of the night, I immediately thought of Neko Case. Which turned out not just to be a similarity in name as Ryan said himself, ‘she is a great influence on me, and is also my spirit animal’. Spirit animals aside, she is clearly not the only influence of this lad. There are a wide range of influences at play that lead to a feel of déjà vu through out the set. Almost like seeing someone you went to primary school with that you can’t quite remember, but still feel you know.
