De Canadese countryzanger Daniel Romano (1985) brengt in 2015 zijn vierde studioalbum If I've Only One Time Askin' uit. Net als op zijn eerdere platen worden ook de nieuwe songs gekenmerkt door zwarte humor. Bijzonder aan het album is verder dat Romano vrijwel alle instrumenten voor zijn rekening neemt. Daarmee toont Romano op overtuigende wijze aan dat niet alleen in Amerika maar ook in Canada uitstekende country wordt gemaakt. © TiVo

Not counting the surprise pair of digital-only albums that appeared just ten months earlier, Finally Free is Daniel Romano's proper follow-up to 2017's confounding yet transportive country psych-pop missive, Modern Pressure. A philosophical one-man song machine, the Canadian indie bard's prolificity somehow hasn't diminished the quality of his work as he once again shifts modes, this time into tones of pastoral British folk and kaleidoscopic druggy musings that all seem to fit snugly within his ever-expanding oeuvre. However he chooses to present his work, Romano remains a man of many words, and Finally Free is no different in that respect. His heady stream of transcendental poetry spills out in myriad forms, from the rich earthen imagery of fingerpicked highlight "All the Reaching Trims" to the cerebral and sometimes tediously meandering freak-folk of "Celestial Manis." "Have You Arrival," the album's longest track at nearly six and a half minutes, counters its complex arrangement and drippy lyrics ("sweet pollens of love in a syrupy breeze") with a deeply engaging melody and exultant harmonies that make it all hang together. Of all the tracks, "Empty Husk" stands as the most succinct and affecting, accelerating slowly from its sweet acoustic refrain of "I won't be afraid," to a massive wall of distorted guitars and drums, to a defiant chorus of "no more darkness, no more." As far as openers go, it's a stunner and a tough act to follow, but as the title suggests, there is a sense of freedom in Finally Free that extends beyond its vanguard. Romano has always been a tough artist to pigeonhole, but there's a feeling here of having shed a few more layers and dug a little deeper into his psyche, and the results are frequently exhilarating. © Timothy Monger /TiVo

Whatever you think of Daniel Romano, you have to give the guy credit -- he's one artist who's not afraid of change. After first making his name in the punk band Attack in Black, Romano shifted gears and cut several fine albums with a polished retro-country feel. Now, after 2015's splendid If I've Only One Time Askin', Romano has taken another detour, and 2016's Mosey is an engaging exercise in smart pop with a decided '60s and '70s slant. While there's still a faint twang in Romano's vocals, the melodies on Mosey sound as if they could have poured out of a portable radio from 1966 to 1975. And while the use of clunky, synthesized horns is a frequent sore spot, most of the time Romano's arrangements suit the concept very well indeed. From the upbeat Latin accents of "Valerie Leon" and the buzzy jukebox rock of "Toulouse" (with a witty guest vocal from Rachel McAdams) to the organ-driven folk-rock of "Maybe Remember Me" and the soulful lament of "(Gone Is) All But a Quarry of Stone," Romano has a real gift for clever, effective melodies, and the performances give them plenty of spirit and punch. (Anyone who spent time listening to Canadian radio during the "Can-Con" era will find Romano's sound here especially resonant.) As a lyricist, Romano is equally witty and heartfelt, plotting the coordinates of heartbreak but not without a wink and a nudge about his own foibles en route. Recorded and mixed in mono, Mosey sounds period-appropriate (if a bit murky in spots), and Romano's vocals work well here, even if his tenor seems a bit better suited to country than rock. The album wraps up with "Dead Medium," a scrappy and exciting rock & roll tune that sounds thoroughly contemporary and suggests Romano could have another new direction in mind for his next project. With Mosey, Daniel Romano leaves no doubt that he's got the talent to bring us something worth hearing regardless of the approach he takes, and if the sound of this set is something of a surprise, the quality is certainly consistent with Romano's best work. © Mark Deming /TiVo

The seventh studio long-player from the mercurial Canadian pop/country crooner and the follow-up to 2016's Mosey (Romano averages about an album a year), Modern Pressure has been described as a "collection of spiritual songs" by its creator. More Walt Whitman than C.S. Lewis, the 12-track set harbors some lofty ambitions, with the Ontario native explaining the overall arc of the record as "the sound of the moment reverberating into the future. Like the music of the spheres, these melodies and verses are both pertinent and timeless." Heady as that statement may be, there's some truth in it, as Romano is a deft architect of knotty indie power pop dressed up in countrypolitan clothing -- think Ezra Furman by way of Van Dyke Parks and Lee Hazlewood. His propensity for verbosity is often rewarded by moments of pure thought distillation ("react at your leisure, modern pressure" is particularly effective), and the arrangements, while notably wily, are always in the service of the main melody, adding frenetic bits of color, kitchen sink samples, and offbeat blasts of rhythm with the mad joy of Jackson Pollock at his least self-destructive. As busy as things get on Modern Pressure, the less kinetic moments are afforded ample time to shine, with some of the LP's strongest bit arriving via breezy, sunset-ready, two-lane highway-worthy jams like "Roya" and "Impossible Green." There are the occasional lo-fi moments that creep in and reduce the efficacy of the LP's overarching retro tube-driven warmth -- the factory orchestral bursts that pepper the otherwise outstanding title track come off as more distracting than clever -- but Romano remains such an unpredictable and compelling presence throughout, that it's easy to forgive the occasional misstep. © James Christopher Monger /TiVo
