The artwork suggests a naive sort of art inside. Music that is not so much skilled as it is enthusiastic. Listening to Wooh Dang my association went out more towards the background than at the brightly coloured cock screaming to the "new" moon. Yes, dark stuff, folks, is what I'm talking about.
Wooh Dang is an intense album on which Daniel Norgren shows a few sides to his musical self. From somewhat strange but still tender ballads like 'So Glad' to a 30s field recording down on a dusty farm in Mississippi, 'Dandelion Time', is a small step for Daniel Norgren. On his new album he jumps through decades like a time traveller. Sometimes sounding older than the music of choice as if a late 60s band like Canned Heat was recorded in the late 30s, recorded in mono in 'Let Love Run The Game'. What could almost be forgotten in the process, is how beautiful this song is. Norgren's voice sounds totally worn out, torn apart by use and time. The singing is definitely strained, the emotions rife.
