Canadian-born, Berlin-based singer-songwriter-producer Dan Bodan is following up his previous singles and EPs for DFA with his debut album, 'Soft'.
As album titles go, 'Soft' is a good one – it has a weird quality to it that fits neatly with Bodan's uneven pop music. Listening to new song Soft As Rain (a weirdo, smooth soul song that a press release describes as being "about sex, cleansing, and finding new love"), the title seems almost onomatopoeic.
Another fun thing about Soft As Rain is that it has a cast of collaborators that reads like the liner notes of an old school recording session: written and performed by Bodan, produced by Great Skin, additional production from Ville Haimala and Physical Therapy, etc. The full list of credits are up on Soundcloud – expect the whole album to be a family affair.
