Gull is the solo project of Nathaniel Rappole who also plays in Richmond-based bands Snack Truck and Ultra Dolphins. Using one hand to play guitar and the other to play drums while he sings into a telephone-receiver-rigged skull mask, Rappole’s tunes are melodic and richly layered, despite the sparse parts that make up the whole.
