Kentucky based Nova Flares, aka Jason Wagers, is back with a full EP on the heals of his single Gut Splinter. The five tracks are nice melodic guitar pieces that are perfect background music for any number of activities. Therein lies the rub, this type of instrumental indie rock will always be background music. The songs are solid and with lyrics and vocals, could be made into something great. As it is, an unfinished after thought is the fate of this EP. Stream and buy Nova Flares at the link below.
