Danial album launch livestream
Time Out says
Tune in to Time Out Sydney's Instagram page for an exclusive listen
At Time Out we've been loving the livestreamed events that have been filling our screens lately. From streams direct from Taronga Zoo's animal residents to virtual music festivals, it's amazing to know that we're only a few taps away from some of the best isolation content in the world.
Which is why we've decided to bring you an exclusive debut album launch right from Time Out Sydney's Instagram feed. On Thursday, April 9 at 5pm, we will be going on live on Instagram with Danial (AKA Midnight Juggernauts and Sebastien Tellier drummer Daniel Stricker) to bring you chill tunes that will guide you into the Easter long weekend.
Stricker, who is also the co-founder of record label Siberia Records, said his solo album Morphin came out of a hospital stint last year, where he was confined to a bed on powerful painkillers. Somewhat fittingly given the current situation, the concept for the album came from finding himself totally isolated and, needing something to do, Stricker wrote the whole record including lyrics, chords and melodies in the space of just two weeks.
The album title Morphin alludes to both the heavy-duty pain meds he had to take, but also the feeling of transformation Stricker experienced. You can get a taster of our livestream of Stricker's album on April 9 by listening to these two spaced out, synth-driven tracks on Danial's Instagram account.
