Album of the Week – 31-01-20

Some great new sounds this week, with new music from the Drive-By Truckers and Frances Quinlan well worth checking out, but in the end it was hard to avoid and old favourite! Those with tickets to his gig tonight in the Grand Social can feel very lucky indeed!

Album of the Week – Mystic Familiar by Dan Deacon

“Dan Deacon’s most emotionally open and transcendent record, Mystic Familiar’s 11 kaleidoscopic tracks of majestic synth-pop exponentially expand his sound with unfettered imagination and newfound vulnerability. It’s the first album where Deacon presents his natural singing voice, unprocessed and with only minimal accompaniment; a vulnerable shift in a songbook abundant with characters, metaphors, and distorted vocals.”
