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.



Seaway's Big Fall

Planned for the summer, 'Big Vibe' was moved to the Fall as COVID swept the nation. It turns out, the vibes were exactly the breath of fresh air we needed. HM contributing writer Danielle Martin talks with Seaway vocalist Ryan Locke about the band's new era, how they formed their sound for 2020, and why Harry Styles belongs in their lives.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
