Year Of The Ox is the fifth release, third studio record, and first good album from Atlanta (GA) artist Nick Edelstein! Here's some fun factoids:
- Named after the Chinese lunar calendar corresponding with 2009, “Year Of The Earth Ox” which began on January 26 ('09).
- Earth Ox’s Western zodiac counterpart is Capricorn, which is Nick’s sign.
- Many facets of the Earth Ox zodiac proved true in 2009, including associations with materialism and long-term progress. For example, it predicts that we should focus on long-term financial strategem; serious romantic commitments (weddings and births increased steadily all year); and “keeping your nose to the grindstone” (we all struggled to find or keep a job).
