Visions Of The Higher Dream: Vinyl LPLPYC001LE
Label: You've Changed Records
Release Date: 13th May
Remember lockdown? Proper lockdown, housebound, nowhere to go, noone you could legally see... lockdown? Well while you were playing Tony Hawks all day or trying to perfect sourdough (a fools errand) Daniel Romano was knocking 'em out like I was knocking back brownies. The crazy thing is, the quality was mega high, EVERYTIME a spot-on batch of power pop, psych country, Americana or rock n roll and produced to absolute perfection. Inhuman. Anyway, he's releasing his covid collection on vinyl and its glorious.
In 2020, Daniel Romano and his increasingly exalted band 'The Outfit' were forced home, faced with the cancellation of tours and all live engagements at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. Almost immediately, Daniel instigated a near legendary run of new albums, releasing 10 full-length albums in the span of nearly the same number of weeks. Genre-spanning, astoundingly distinct artist achievements of an unprecedented order, these albums were originally released exclusively in digital only formats on Bandcamp. They were direct and immediate missives from one of the most talented, prolific, ambitious, and exciting artists of his generation. We are thrilled to begin releasing these albums now in very special limited- edition vinyl pressings. 'Visions Of The Higher Dream' is an expression of rich, Beatles- esque (but so much more) psychaedelia, visionary, powerfully arranged and immaculately performed, and thoroughly beautiful in its scope and in its deails. It is as complete a statement, and as fully executed a vision as this famously restless artist has offered. Timeless and timely evocations of a higher dream.
