DANIELSON’S newest release, Trying Hartz, samples the first decade of the Danielson/Danielson Famile/Br. Danielson oeuvre (all the years before the critically acclaimed Ships). It’s a perfect starter volume for listeners who have not had the pleasure of engaging with the evolution of this unusual, surprising, and incredibly moving musical consortium.
On Silence is Wild, FRIDA HYVÖNEN’S second full-length, Hyvonen continues to take an utterly modern approach to classic songwriting forms: blending the confessional with the fictional; mixing wit with a sexuality that shifts from the refined to the raw; all the while using language which dances effortlessly between the timeless and the contemporary, referencing high art and pop culture in a transcendent manner which masterfully puts Hyvönen at the top of a new international class of singer-songwriters.
Both of these albums are due out on 11/04, but you can pre-order them HERE
