Daniel Land and the Modern Painters - Within the Boundaries/Benjamin's Room
Label: Sonic Cathedral
Format: 7"


Perfect double A sided debut single from Daniel Land, who formed his shoegazing group, the Modern Painters, after seeing a Ulrich Schnauss DJ set in Manchester last year

This double A sided single is the debut release from Daniel Land who grew up in North Devon and formed his band, the Modern Painters, last year after witnessing a Ulrich Schnauss DJ set in Manchester. The A side, 'Within the Boundaries', brings back memories of Slowdive in 1991 when that band's music consisted of layers of sound wave over sound wave. They just wash over you here, while Daniel's vocal is very short but works well within the music. The AA Side, 'Benjamin's Room', is a country song about gay sex. It jangles in a Byrds-style country way, but also sizzles in a shoegaze haze. Damn perfect if you ask me.
