The Spookfish's surreal space-folk (or something)

The Spookfish's surreal space-folk (or something)

We are not sure what led Dan Goldberg of The Spookfish to record his album "Black Hole" in a studio after spending ten years recording his own music in DIY fashion (according to his Bandcamp profile, the man has recorded 10 full lengths between 2010 and 2014!). Whatever the reason, the music of The Spookfish hasn't lost one bit of its lo-fi character and charm, developing on often juxtaposed and sometimes blended elements of dream-folk and 8-bit space rock. Single 'Everything is Moving So Fast,' one of the few tracks with lyrics, perfectly describes the static and surreal mood of the record: "You're standing slowly, watching it pass, everything is moving so fast." Echoes of early Flaming Lips and Sebadoh give this track a '90s flair that is though misleading: the rest of the album is a very personal, mostly instrumental - and often quirky - take on lo-fi.
