Your Daily Lick: Mike Eckstein

Far West Day Dream (self-released)

There’s something amusingly depressive about Far West Day Dream. Falling Broadly situated in the Americana genre the whole album feels like an ode to heavy drinking, moping, and contemplating. In other words, it’s really more country than anything else. Not a cheerful record, but it’s skillfully executed and rather pretty, in its folkier moments.

At Nomad Cafe (6500 Shattuck Ave., Oakland) on July 30. 7 p.m., free
