Parts & Labor noisenik Dan Friel is following up last year’s worthy “Valedictorian”/”Exoskeleton” 12″ with the forthcoming full-length Total Folklore. For this record, we’re told Friel’s taken his rousing and overdriven keyboard pop to the next level of DIY via handmade music boxes. A tour with Buke & Gase would be fun, conceptually.) If you are interested in hearing Dan’s new album track “Thumper,” or in possibly getting one of those handmade boxes by pre-ordering the record, click here:
Total Folklore is out in February via Thrill Jockey. Pre-order it and learn about Dan’s handmade box process, and how to get one, at the TJ site.
