The first original Nanaki material to be released since 2004.
'This is immersive music, not just some smoke-and-mirrors illusion of intellectualism. Sole remaining Nanaki member Mikie Daugherty knows exactly what he’s doing; there’s a marked air of determined direction present on this release, and not even the faintest hint of self-defeating doubt or uncertainty...Unorthodox, experimental, and unselfconscious, Afterlight is evidently the work of a true artist...'
- The Musical Melting Pot
'Mikie Daugherty knows his job and does excellently, building patiently and methodically the atmosphere of his compositions...beautiful and pleasant, though sometimes chaotic or acidic, it must be fun when you're a super-talented musician...Sublime work' - Clair & Obscur
'awe inspiring...Expect sweet transitions from track to track, excellent progressive skill, and insight into the depths of an elaborate artistic mind' -D4AM
'this album is a wild ride through the galaxies of rock music. “Afterlight” should be in your collection and it’s worth listening again and again.' - The Musical Junkie
'Daughterty’s versatility as a musician is incredible, bouncing between rock genres with each song and effortlessly re-imagining his sound in epic four minute bursts...As an album, it’s completely schizophrenic, but whatever your flavor for rock, one song is bound to speak to you, if not all of them. “Afterlight” is a musicians album, an impressive experiment, and the sum of its parts looks like some sort of interstellar Frakenstein rock monster, with visceral chunks borrowed from a history of post-rock and outer space.' - The New Lo-Fi
'Five instrumental tracks that vary from post-rock to near-drone, but all with a heavy art rock vibe. The songs sound sophisticated in an appreciable fashion...The whole EP is done well and makes for a fine listen' - Space Rock Mountain
'This is a great EP with 5 energetic rocking instrumentals. Over each track the guitars are able to show off all sorts of ideas painting some very colorful soundscapes. 4/5' - Tomatrax
'five tracks of involving, evolving post rock which exhibit either a sense of humour or a bitter outlook or both' - Supajam
'the guitar work is masterful...a fine musician' - Floorshime Zipper Boots
