Ep. #324: Daniel Romano
Daniel Romano is a multi-talented musician, producer, songwriter, and label co-owner, who currently calls Fenwick, Ontario home. Over the past 15 years, he’s made a name for himself in bands like Attack in Black and Daniel, Fred, and Julie, and also as a solo artist exploring the far reaches of folk, country, rock, and punk music. His sixth solo album is called Modern Pressure, which was just long-listed for the 2017 Polaris Music Prize in Canada and is otherwise being lauded as Romano’s finest and most mystifying album yet. It’s out courtesy of You’ve Changed Records in Canada and New West Records elsewhere and it prompted Dan to return to this show to discuss turning off the refrigerator in his compound apartment, music appreciation and consumption, Jennifer Castle, diss tracks and his new song about the Ramones and U2, the new tape by his band Ancient Shapes, Bob Dylan’s recent speech accepting his Nobel Prize for Literature, the future of his old band Attack in Black, Modern Pressure, and much more.
