|Danielle Howle has has a long history with music;
she's recorded releases for many of the great labels on the indie scene, including Kill
Rock Stars and Sub Pop. Now she's reteaming with Daemon Records (who released her
1997 album, "Do A Two Sable") in order to release a new sixteen-track CD.
of the songs on this album are very pleasant. Howle's songwriting talents and
durable voice are clearly evident on "Skorborealis." Howle tries out
a whole plethora of styles on the album, so you're really in for a mixture.
"Swamp Song" and "High School Dance" sound like Julie Doiron
songs, while "Camaro Power" and "Subclassic" find her dealing in the
hard rock genre. Meanwhile, "Could Be Here" and "Cut A Rug" are
country-tinged rock songs, and "Soft White China Patterns" and "I'm In
It" are moody indie pop tracks.
From hard rock to country to indie rock to dream pop, and everything in between,
Danielle Howle has proven herself to be an amazing songwriter and musician. Everyone
will find something they like in this album. And as for the bad? Well, there
isn't much of it.
