If you haven’t already fallen in love with Daniel Johnston, allow this to be the spark that ignites that fire. Marissa Nadler released this as a Halloween treat (I’m still not willing to let my favorite holiday go), and it’s sweeter than any candy I ate that day. Nadler also released a cover of Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World” [link].
In recent(ish) Nadler news, her most recent release was the eight song companion to last year’s self-titled, The Sister [link]. As for Johnston, it looks like his latest work was the indiegogo project Normal: The Daniel Johnston Live Vinyl EP - A Benefit for Brett Hartenbach” [link]. I’m not sure if the EP will be available to non-supporters after the fact (I, too, missed that boat), but it’s worth keeping an eye on, just as the good cause is still worth donating to [link].
