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.


Pantokrator 2021

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
