For Danielson fans, its been a long three-plus years since Monsieur Daniel Smith and the family set Ships a-sail. A marvelous album, it expanded on the childlike multi-instrument indie-gospel pop he helped propagate—anybody else hear a lotta Danielson in Arcade Fire’s jangles? Until the next full-length drops (we know not when), buy/download the new ode to the power-of-the-present-moment, 7-inch single “Moment Soakers” (with an ABBA cover on the b-side). Or just sport your new Daniel Smith-designed and John Fluevog-created dress shoes at the show (all true).
