Nima Kazerouni is So Many Wizards with or without local collaborators, and his new Love Songs For When You Leave Me EPcoming to iTunes and some adorable handmade format you can keep with your fingerpaintscollects together a winningly screwball set of influences that overlap only for their charm and idiosyncrasy. Syd Barretts around and Marc Bolan, tooboth barefootand the cork-on-the-ocean-era Brian Wilson (Like No Other, which even starts with the word California. . .) and maybe Nikki Sudden and Joe Meek and Doug Martschand whats this mean for you? It means youve got one multi-instrumental heart-on-his-sleeve kinda guy with so much bright light behind him that you cant see his face for all the sparkles. This album must have been a great Valentine for somebody.
