Nick Rapley is one of those artists I've been trying to get on the show for the better part of two years.  As with most of the Indianapolis music scene, that's kind of like hitting a moving target.  Though his music has been featured on the show before, as two of his prior bands had strong showings in our Podcast Battle of the Bands back in 2010, it was not until the release of his first solo effort, "A pot Luck Melody" that I finally got the chance to sit down and enjoy a couple of beers with him -- which was well worth the wait.

"A Pot Luck Melody" is eight tracks firmly rooted in the nebulous realm of indie power-pop.  Within that framework, however, Nick -- as an established producer, performer, and songwriter (oh, and did I mention artist?) -- explores the fringes, delving into fringes of rap, spoken word, progressive rock, and artistic soundscapes as he stretches his artistic chops, presenting the results to us as what he terms the search for .
