Danielson (aka Danielson Famile, Br. Danielson)

to release new album on Cassette

“Best of Gloucester County” to be released on cassette w/ digital Feb 22 via Joyful Noise Recordings

Joyful Noise is very happy to announce the release of the new Danielson album on cassette (w/ digital). “Best of Gloucester County” is Danielson’s first album in five years – and the followup to their widely acclaimed album “Ships”. Featuring the
banjo/vocal work of Sufjan Stevens, and a cameo from Jens Lekman, “Best of Gloucester County” displays Danielson’s trademark bizarre, squeaky art-folk and theatrical spiritualism in it’s most mature and refined state.

On February 22, Joyful Noise will be releasing an extremely limited edition of Danielson’s
“Best of Gloucester County” on cassette (w/ digital), alongside Sounds Familyre’s release of the LP and CD.

The cassette edition of the album…

  • is limited to just 300 hand-numbered copies
  • includes digital download (MP3 & FLAC)
  • includes full 8 panel artwork
  • is pressed on a white cassette with high-quality chrome tape


Copies can currently be ordered via Joyful Noise here:
The $8 cassette purchase is accompanied by an MP3 & FLAC
download code.

About JNR

Joyful Noise is an Indianapolis, IN based record label which is a home for 18+ diverse bands such as Joan Of Arc, Jookabox, Marmoset, Child Bite, CJ Boyd, Hermit Thrushes, Prizzy Prizzy Please and others. We have also been fortunate to release specialty cassette editions of albums from of Montreal, Deerhoof, Akron/Family and others. We strive to release music that is artistically honest, exploratory, and often haphazard. JNR is not a traditional noise label, nor are we interested in traditional indie rock. We do however love when these two sides of the spectrum intersect in interesting ways.


Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Most of these days, the sun rises and sets on a world that feels like it's dying. Across the pond, where Employed to Serve calls home, they're learning how to support their latest record a year into its release. HM contributor Andrew Voigt recently sat down with Justine Jones to learn more about the band, marrying your bandmates, and their outside shot at touring with Rammstein.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
