You've got to feel a little bit for Black Daniel. They made radio waves in 2008, played some dates with Kasabian, and things were going better than good. But just when there was a chance the world might have been theirs for the taking, their debut album got middling reviews, then promptly got stuck in a legal mire when Pinnacle went under. Lesser bands would have packed up and gone home, but to their credit Black Daniel ploughed on with their own inimitable synth flavoured garage pop ramblings.»

'let's get sued' is drenched in the musical traits that got black daniel noticed with their first album 'hard times on the way'. scuzzy, distorted, garage sounds, the shared vocal duties and interplay between lamik2000 and craig (lamik's english drawl, craig's uber ny intonations), and the brazen, stomping songwriting, make this a band with one of the most identifiable sounds around. the album features acclaimed singles 'look away sancho' (a dis single of the year) and 'i love you but don't touch me but you're sick'. black daniel's quintessential garage swagger plays on velvet underground comparisons perfectly, infusing a stomping, raucous glam rhythm into the mix, especially on tracks like 'look away sancho' and 'move like royalty'. and with tracks like 'money' and 'lonely screen boy', the guys (somewhat) slow things down to a dirty choral psychedelia akin to the likes of nick cave and the doors, proving they ain't no one trick pony. by the time 'lonely screen boy' closes proceedings, that wash of adrenaline will seem so powerful, you'll struggle not to hit the play button again.
