About this video
Nashville-based alt country songstress Nikki Lane, our Ones to Watch artist for May, sat down with us to take our On the Record challenge, in which she was given 45 seconds to talk about her all-time favorite album. Here, Lane discusses [Free Again: The 1970 Sessions], a "tragic, lonely and beautiful" posthumous collection from power pop legend Alex Chilton. "The best records are the ones where it sounds like a mixtape," Lane tells us. We couldn't agree more. Enjoy.
