Spaced Out Track from The Dan Ryan
Nathan Dixey has done his time, playing with Hospital Ships and Your Friend, but he’s now going it on his own as The Dan Ryan…and it’s nice to hear what he’s creating. Trickling in, the track allows for some tension and psychedelic notes, but I don’t feel like this could be characterized as psych rock. If anything, it’s a re-imagining of folk music, a la Devendra Barnhart, though imagine that being recorded inside a bubble or beneath water; the vocals seem to struggle for air, whilst a tribal percussive element works beneath. You’ll definitely get an other-worldly vibe from this tune; it’s one of the tracks that will appear on his self-titled LP, coming out May 27th via Cosmic Dreamer Music. The Dan Ryan will celebrate the album release with a show at Cheer Up Charlies on May 24th; be sure to check the event page HERE.
