Nikki Meets the Hibachi: “Not Mending” (2006)

Nikki was a small, noisy dog. The hibachi was…a hibachi. The band name derived from the threat of introducing dog to cooking appliance at a party…or something like that.

So, to the music: The folk duo (Elaine Tola and John Gillespie) released one cult favorite album, 1991’s out of print The Bluest Sky, which fetches sky-high prices for used copies online. Back Around was their next album, released a full fifteen years later.

They have a bit of that Robin and Linda Williams, Richard and Linda Thompson thing going on. Melodic, acoustic, harmonic…and therapeutic.
