The first release from new indie label One Hundred Records is a very striking one. DDD (aka the 25-year-old Daryl Woollaston) makes distorted, lo-fi acoustic guitar rattling over slight and faint backing, with a wild voice crawling through fuzz to reach a strange and unique kind of pop perfection. These two songs are full of timing changes and odd pauses, overloaded with personality, creativity and ambition... apparently DDD's approach to recording is meticulous and perfectionist, which makes the ramshackle lo-fi-ness of these songs all the more intriguing. He wanted it to sound exactly like this? Cool!
DDD is a singer/songwriter that instantly stands out from the pack. You can buy this double A-side from selected indie stores, or as MP3 (from the One Hundred Records website), from May 5th.
