Did You Hear? Velveteenager (Minneapolis B)

New music! Sometimes old music. Music that we love!

Daniel James, a.k.a. Canon Blue, released the album Rumspringa in 2011, and it confused me for a while. I listened to it and dismissed it. Then it started coming up on shuffle and each new song blew me away. Maybe because it’s the kind of music that demands something from you, these single servings worked better for me. Now I’m hooked.

James worked with Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear for this record, as well as an amazing string group (out of Iceland, thank you Wikipedia). I highly recommend the whole album!

Here’s another track I love called “Chicago.”
