Boomkat Product Review:
With a film about his life expected to ring some critical bells next year, 2006 sees the rebirth of Daniel Johnston. Widely accepted as the 'godfather of lofi' Johnston's champions include Sonic Youth, Kurt Cobain, Tom Waits and David Bowie among many others. The songwriter and artist has been through a number of troubling moments in his life, but has always somehow managed to get through it and bubble in and out of popularity. These recordings were made with his producer and tour manager Don Goede (Jack Medicine) as they toured for three years in America. Over the course of more than 100 shows the two became close friends and that friendship is reflected in this stunning collection of classic rock music. Surprisingly 'hi fi' for Johnston, his quirky vocals are still intact, but the production is up a few notches and inject the songs with a vigour very rarely heard in his work. Anyone curious about what the outer realms of American rock music should really sound like owes it to themselves to check out 'The Electric Ghosts' (so titled after many late night conversations about whether ghosts were spiritual or electrical anomalies).
