Canadian musician, poet and artist Daniel Romano releases new album ‘Modern Pressure’ which is evidently his most explorative work to date. Romano takes inspiration from just about everything from classic TV and movie themes to 60’s pop melodies, stitching it all together into a slightly-kitschy but very 21st century aesthetic.
That said, when the album isn’t being slightly kitsch there are more than a few shades of Dylan to enjoy, as well as 1960’s Route 66 road anthems. Just for good measure there are also pieces that belong up on stage at the Grand Ole Opry .As diverse and unrestrained an album as one would expect then from such a genre-defying artist as Daniel Romano.
