Daniel Wyche Shares “The Elephant Whale II” Off New LP ‘Earthwork’, out Nov. 12th on American Dreams Records (Ambient, Sound Art, Experimental)
Today Chicago-based guitarist, composer, improviser and professor, Daniel Wyche, released the new single “The Elephant Whale II” off his upcoming LP, Earthwork, out November 12th, 2021 via American Dreams Records.
The main guitar riff for the album’s third song, the album’s shortest and catchiest number, was something Wyche came up with in high school – that lapse of significant time is important to the album’s narrative – a lot can happen over the course of six years, let alone twenty. For Wyche, grappling with memory and the passage of time are at the forefront of this music.
