Seattle PI – “Anthems…” Review

Not News | Press

“This is a lovely, lilting record, but to call them songs isn’t accurate. For his fourth studio album, Seattleite Daniel G. Harmann has crafted nine lush dreamscapes that plod along in a slow and midtempo trance. Track to track, the playbook doesn’t change much: twinkling guitars, melancholy minor chords, distant vocals that — regardless of the words he’s actually crooning — echo a distant despair or some far-off loneliness. While this may not be the best sales pitch, “Anthems” is actually a very gratifying and certainly hypnotic meditation on woe.”
– Shawn Telford, the Seattle P-I
