Album Preview: Akhbar
Between his work in The Doctors Fox, 3dCosby, and his solo project, Daniel Harris has gotten a lot of love over the years from TWRY. Now living in a new city (Philly) with a new project called Akhbar, he’s embracing his sensitive side, embarking on the smoothest drones you’ll ever come across.
After watching the movie Gravity, I’m pretty sure this is the soundtrack I’d want to listen to floating around the earth, watching the sun rise and fall brilliantly during orbit. I just hope they’ve got tape decks in space – this album was recorded direct to cassette, one 23-minute drone per side.
For we mere mortals, the songs make for excellent meditation/background/pre-sleep music, and I promise that’s not code for boring. Just in case you’re not down with popular 80s technology, each cassette comes with a free download card, too. The new album is available precisely now-ish, you can download a preview here, and check out all the social media funsies here:
Check the gorgeous art by a couple monikered BrainTwins, discovered in the Midwest while Harris was touring on the 3dCosby album last summer. The text, though, is all Daniel Harris original. Keep your eyes peeled, Akhbar will likely be making its New England debut in late Spring!
