Daniel Land – London Album Launch Show – Plus Special Guests
Wed 27 Feb
Daniel Land launches his new album ‘The Dream Of The Red Sails’ with a full-band headline performance at Paper Dress Vintage
The first Daniel Land & The Modern Painters album, ‘Love Songs For The Chemical Generation’, was called “One of the finest shoegaze-tinged, ambient guitar records of its time” by Drowned In Sound, and “Like Slowdive reimagined by Phil Spector” by the NME. It is now widely considered to be a modern classic of the shoegaze genre, with Daniel a “Dream Pop cult hero” in the words of The Skinny – releasing records on his own label, and known only to the Shoegaze cognoscenti.
Ten years on from ‘Love Songs For The Chemical Generation’, Daniel’s new album, ‘The Dream Of The Red Sails’ is a return to the classic Shoegaze/Dream Pop style for which he is better known, and Daniel will be touring the UK in February and March, performing songs old and new, with a full live band.
A dazzling array of atmospheric, mesmerising excursions, serves up a whole range of twists and turns with every subsequent listen.
– DROWNED IN SOUND
Completely out of fashion with the popular music of today, bearing no relation to anything else being made. And I love it to pieces.
– THE LINE OF BEST FIT
You can’t help but think this is the kind of thing the late John Peel would have loved.
– ROB DA BANK, BBC RADIO 1
His voice soars, like the spawn of Liz Fraser and Antony Hegarty in space. This is the sort of thing Daniel Land & the Modern Painters make you write. They should feel deeply ashamed.
– THE GUARDIAN
