Dan'l Boone

DC 597LP DC 597LP

Released in 2014. "Dan'l Boone is Charles Ballas (Formant), Neil Hagerty (ex-Royal Trux, Howling Hex, etc.), Nate Young (Wolf Eyes, Regression, etc.) and Alex Moskos (Drainolith). The crew convened in Denver, CO to work on the forthcoming Drainolith record and decided to make another record at the same time. Neil and Nate really ran things at the sessions at Uneven Studios. There were lots of electronics that Young would set up and Hagerty would give some direction. Hagerty had various lyric sheets and scores that the group worked with but once the record started to take shape Young became very involved in plotting out the flow of the record. 'I'd come downstairs into Charles' basement and Nate and Neil would be making competing diagrams that represented the record. I was so lost,' says Moskos. The new planet recently discovered, in the Goldilocks Zone -- the habitable range that is neither too hot nor too cold and thus can support liquid water -- by NASA's Kepler telescope is earth-sized and earth like. It is in fixed orbit?called a tidal lock -- meaning that on one side it's always night and one side it's always day. It's about 5000 light years away from earth. It is said humans can't reach this planet without first discovering a new physics. So like the original city dwellers who wanted to reach Planet Rock, like those who wished to originally attain the Trip Metal Moons or those who created the mothership with which to raise the funky planet... you have to create a NEW music to really leave the depressed and turgid and lifeless zones behind and truly get somewhere."
