who is danny malone?
“Unwilling to commit to genre, Malone seamlessly crosses lines between folk, indie, electro, even hip-hop, a mash-up of pop and lock with ballet set to 4 track instrumental indie post rock, (No Keys) a genre Malone categorizes as "future folk / sexy depression." Malone never takes himself too seriously and has enough off-kilter edge to pull it off.”
- Austin Chronicle
“Malones second full-length release, Balloons, was recorded in a haunted castle in Denmark, creating a magical atmosphere to unlock his "WTF mesmerizing" (Indie Sounds) brand of genius. Malone (who played all instruments) and producer Mattie Smith recorded all 10 songs in 10 days, each in a different room of the castle, using sounds that they found or created for all of the drum sounds, such as slamming a piano lid shut for the snare drum sound and stomping the floor for the bass drum. The result is "An emotional, powerful tour-de-force of vulnerable personal biography and insightful musings about life."
- Music Worth Reviewing
“I’m cooler than singer/songwriter. But not as cool as Daft Punk. I ate Paul Simon’s voice and vomit my words out hard and slow. I’m Joe Cocker’s sober brother, who relapsed, and no longer comes to Christmas. I’m Chris Gaines. But skinnier. And real.”

We The Tigress, They The Wildebeast
We The Tigress, They The Wildebeast might be the best album to have ever been recorded, or WILL ever be recorded. No one knows, of course, but it sure takes might to say it. What can be said for sure is this: The album is, at the very least, or is not, at best, not NOT the best album to have ever been recorded! All this is to say that, by all accounts, and to the standards of any titular rulebook, dictionary, or the many varied indices of formal, regional, and idiosyncratic, dialectical schematics of the intricate semantics, or abstractical grammatics still in tact and acceptable... it’s an album.
