Bands You Should Know: Daniel G. Harmann & The Trouble Starts

Daniel G. Harman & The Trouble Starts took me by surprise.  Their 6th album Risk is really solid and grows on you with each listen.  Risk will be available on October 26th, 2010.

About the Band: For his sixth album, entitled Risk, Daniel G. Harmann has beefed up his sound with The Trouble Starts. Primarily a solo artist, Harmann describes the new album as a collection of “Big songs you dream about making and playing to lots of people”. Risk was recorded live over five days at Electrokitty Studios with Long Winters bassist Eric Corson. On Risk, Harmann and his band have created an intriguing collection of working class art rock with a full, sweeping sound leaving the pretense firmly at the door. Risk is lyrically all about taking chances. Harmann & The Trouble Starts has crafted an album that is difficult to pigeonhole. Risk lives and breathes at two separate corners only to meet somewhere perfectly in the middle between the elegant and the abrasive. “Call it what you will,” Harmann says, “but at its core, its rock and roll. It’s dirty and imperfect. It’s quiet and loud.” Finding beauty in the simpleness of everyday life is what sustains us all. Harmann knows this and the emotional depth within Risk is honest and remarkably uplifting. [Beartrap PR]
