Dan Friel, “Rattler”

Dan Friel

Have you ever listened to 8-bit electronic music and wished you could thrash out just a bit more than Mario and friends will let you? Then you should be listening to Dan Friel as much as possible. The former Parts & Labor member has been a beacon of light in the dark haunts of DIY Brooklyn for many years (quite literally, his performance rig is also a source of light). Taking some of the most complex sounds and noises he can conjure, Friel filters them into catchy, punk numbers that should appeal to fans across all music spectrums. “Rattler” is no different; an eerie four-four banger to soundtrack your fall months.

“Rattler” is off of Dan Friel’s upcoming Life LP, available via Thrill Jockey on October 16. You can stream it below, and scroll on for upcoming tour dates.
