£14.00

“A neo-psychedelic monument, the most phenomenal Americana record of the year…”
★★★★½
ROLLING STONE GERMANY

“a thing of real beauty” ★★★★
UNCUT

“Israel Nash surely deserves wider exposure. If ‘Rain Plans’ doesn’t convince you, nothing will”
THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

“…a landmark record in both a literal and figurative sense. It’s the third of Gripka’s career thus far, but one whose rapturous beauty easily outstrips anything he’s done before. There are striking echoes of Laurel Canyon-era Nick Drake and a cosmic dusting of Pink Floyd. …a record that suggests the full flowering of a rare talent”
CLASSIC ROCK

“In ‘Rain Plans,’ the guitars crackle and burn, the harmonies moan with sadness, and Eric Swanson spins gold with his pedal steel. The song looks both inward and outward — widescreen Americana at its finest.”
NPR

“The album is filled with lush, psychedelic soundscapes to compliment Nash’s reflective songwriting.”
MASHABLE

★★★★
THE INDEPENDENT

“Gripka has created a Wall of Sounds that could best be described as the CSN&Y album that Neil Young should have produced but never did.”
NO DEPRESSION

“This is more spooky, ethereal death-country that evokes ghosts on the prairie and storm clouds on the horizon”
GRANTLAND

“There is an easy-rolling, outdoorsy, relaxed feel to the songs here —an airy wide-openness…”
RELIX

“A glorious neo-psychedelic masterpiece.”
KEXP

“Nash paints a sonic picture using bright strokes of grunge, ‘60s folk-pop and crying pedal steel.”
CMT

“compelling.”
PASTE

“his third album drips with authenticity and his songs seep into your soul, lingering long after the last notes fad away.”
★★★★½
THE SUN

“Israel Nash harks back to another time and makes it his own with noteworthy success.”
AUSTIN CHRONICLE

“There is a vivid sense of imagery permeating through Rain Plans. Simple, textured instrumentation compliments songs about traveling through life to find whatever it is you’re looking for.”
GLIDE MAGAZINE

“Americana at its purest…” THE ONION / AV CLUB

“…likely going to make several year-end lists when all is said and done—both here and abroad.”
STEREOSUBVERSION

“Rain Plans is nine songs long but every tune washes over you in no worry with wandering guitar solos that are in no hurry find their end.” HEAR YA

“…moody new album Rain Plans falls in the lush, hazy territory between ’70s-heyday Neil Young and Fleet Foxes.”
MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE

"Gripka has created a Wall of Sounds that could best be described as the CSN&Y album that Neil Young should have produced but never did." - NO DEPRESSION

"Seriously, if you care about your music you need this latest offering from Israel Nash Gripka in your life. It’s a classic." - PENNYBLACK MUSIC
