This is the fourth solo release by Dallas, Texas-based singer/songwriter/producer Salim Nourallah. In 1998, Salim and his brother Faris Nourallah recorded their debut CD, Nourallah Brothers, on an 8-track recorder. Before it was even released, the brothers decided to go their separate ways and have not recorded music together since. Salim released his first solo record, Polaroid, in May of 2004 on Western Vinyl/Secretly Canadian. He went on to release the critically-acclaimed Beautiful Noise in 2005 which won "Best CD/Best Song" and "Best Producer" in the 2006 Dallas Observer Awards. 2007's Snowing In My Heart yielded the successful single "Don't Be Afraid" which appeared on HBO's TV show, The Wire. Constellation was recorded in the spring of 2008 with singer/songwriter/producer extraordinaire, Billy Harvey. Salim and Billy played and sang everything themselves with the notable exception of guest appearances on the song "Saint Georges" by Austin musicians Bob Schneider (vocals & piano) and Bruce Hughes (upright bass). Constellation is a joyous sonic return to the indie-pop sounds of Nourallah Brothers while also maintaining the emotional directness of Salim's previous solo efforts. With comparisons to a post-Beatles/George Harrison/Jeff Tweedy vibe, Constellation rewards with more soaring vocals, catchy melodies and evocative words, promising to be one of Salim's best efforts to date.
