Despite Dan Black being one of the original 9 or 10 artists I told you all to watch in 2009, he has sort of fallen off my radar, to no fault of his own. I've been consumed by other new artists as well as new releases by some of my all-time favorites (YYYs, Phoenix, Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear). I did a quick GMail search a few minutes ago and I managed to squeeze out four Dan Black mp3s that I have not heard yet slash didn't know existed. Color me scatterbrain.
These four new songs, coupled with the songs already in my iPod, Dan Black has proven to be a powerful force in motion, and it doesn't look like it will stop until his debut album finally drops —supposedly in June. Catch the new tunes after the jump.
