Dan Friel is an alchemist of far out sounds. After 10 years with Parts and Labor releasing numerous EPs on Night People, Green Age, Velocirecords, and a full-length on the distinguished Important label, Friel recently dropped his first solo LP, entitled Total Folklore on Thrill Jockey.
On Total Folklore, Friel creates a hyper-real space through various homemade instruments and recorded sounds. Buried beneath a tapestry of industrial noise lingers alluring pop anthems...melodies gain force, collide, and burst in beautiful array.
Be sure to check out Friel's live performance in this recent Newtown Session video, as well as the full session recording, right here.
