music: daniel dixon


I met Daniel Dixon several years ago while he was on the road with my friends, The Cobalt Season. Watching him play live, I was thoroughly impressed by his musicianship. And as we sat on my kitchen floor, talking late into the night, I was impressed by what a decent human being he is as well. His most recent release, Night Watching, features well what Daniel is capable of artistically. His music transports you somewhere. Here he communicates more with instrumentation than most accomplish with lyrics. Eat your heart out, Sigur Ros. I choose Dixon over your gibberish.
