Micah Nelson: The Trippy Troubadour | Rolling Stone

"Playing music with Neil Young has been like 'getting a masters degree in Jedi training,' " says Micah Nelson.

From an interview "The Trippy Troubadour: Micah Nelson Explains Why 'Perfect' Is Overrated" | Rolling Stone by Andy Greene:
Micah says playing music with Young has been like "getting a masters degree in Jedi training." Young has schooled the Nelson brothers with precepts like, "The perfect is highly overrated." "The main thing he's taught me about music is, 'If you think, you're fucked.' You have to accept your flaws and embrace them."

Young cast Micah, Lukas and the rest of Promise of the Real in his trippy western Paradox, directed by Young's girlfriend Daryl Hannah and shot in the Rockies during a four day tour break, using vintage Super 8 film and Hannah’s phone. "We're all miners in the future, mining for ancient technology like computers and phones," says Micah. "It's a strange, beautiful art film." He say that Young and Hannah call Paradox "a very loud poem" — perhaps the only such poem streaming on Netflix.

The soundtrack to Paradox is a Trippie Poem on it’s own. I really like this release, it has a stream of consciousness that plays much better than the film. Not that the film isn’t interesting, but I think the record is more successful. Side two is particularly amazing as just a series of songs, and Lucas’s version of Angel flying too close to the ground is just breathtaking. I’m sure his dad is very proud. The sequencing is really interesting and I think it flows nicely as a stand-alone record. I have only seen the film once but I think a second trip is eminent, and perhaps I’ll be able to grasp a few more things I may have missed on the first viewing.

Its very much a NY movie. Starts off with plenty of nonsense then includes a few good songs. I really think Peace Trail is his best and maybe only good song in 20 years. I liked the Desert Trip instrumental Cowgirl. The campfire Angel Flying is very nice also. The last scene with NY sort of towing the floating Hannah is great and flashes a genuine Neil Young smile. It is what it is. Take what you like and discard the rest.

Carnival, Show Me, Wolf Moon, When I Watch You Sleeping, Ramada Inn, Peaceful Valley Blvd. - I just grabbed one song off his past 6 original studio albums (in the past 8 years. - crazy) These are some of my favourites on these albums and I think they stand up to anything he's put out over his entire career.To each their own, but it's hard to imagine in 20 years that Peace Trail is his only song you like! :) Peace
