Malibu HighAfter experiencing over two decades of Duluth winters, clever wordsmith Keith Ambrose Nelson had enough and decided to turn the bleak season on its head. Enter his solo project, ironically titled Malibu High. Trying to capture the absurd juxtaposition of his own cold weather existence with that of the mindless/shirtless California youth culture, Nelson has put together a collection of quick-witted, and at times hilarious, songs. He moves easily between the intelligence-infused numbers like “Horatio to Hamlet” to bouncier tracks like “Contract Void.” If you’ve ever worn wrist sweatbands to a bar, chances are you are the subject of a song by Malibu High.
