Jad Fair and Danielson announce tour together, feast on the psychic energy of collaboration

It is altogether possible that Danielson’s Daniel Smith may have an insatiable appetite for collaboration. In Danielson, it’s not enough for him to work with his own family, he also brings in scores of non-familial members, some of whom you may have heard of for one reason or another. But even that’s not enough. To curb his hunger pangs, he’s gotten together with Half Japanese’s Jad Fair. Together, the two will tour the United States in September as… Jad Fair & Danielson. Look, simply because you are collaborating does not mean that you need to cook up some fancy name. Since they cannot be sated, they are also to be accompanied by Kramer (longtime Jad Fair associate, member of Bongwater, producer of Galaxie 500, Low, and others) on bass. One can imagine things getting out of hand and the entire audience being absorbed into the band.

As collaborators are wont to do, Jad Fair & Danielson have recorded their mutual spark for all the world to hear. That spark is in the form of Solid Gold Heart, an album by the two out now through Sounds Familyre. Listen to below via Danielson’s Bandcamp. Now go start a band with someone you love.
