Today's Brew | Danielson

since: 1995
from: Clarksboro, New Jersey
current release: "Ships" (May 9th)

Daniel Smith aka Danielson has pulled together for his current album "Ships", a collective effort of contributors (working with family and friends) with Deerhoof, Sufjan Stevens, Why?,Serena Maneesh, Leopulde, Half-handed Cloud and others.

Pitchfork comments the album as "(Smith) distills the best and most unique attributes of his sound, and marries that creative concentrate to a grander, more cinematic sensibility. The result is staggeringly triumphant-- the blustering, ambitious consummation of all he's worked toward."
The album got a 9.1.
