“PURGATORY COVE” SINGLE ARTWORK // DOWNLOAD HIGH-RES
Today, Danny Michel is releasing the third track from his upcoming album, “Purgatory Cove”. The swampy new song sees Danny playing every instrument from his hidden-away forest studio and creating something a little more dreamy than usual, pairing fuzzed out guitars with ethereal lyrics.

Each song on the album will be released one at a time over the course of a few weeks and months. At the end, we’ll have a 6 song album that will be pressed to CD and 10” vinyl. Each track will receive its own original artwork etched into real wood, all tying into the final album cover and title. “I'm all about the idea of shorter albums, more often,” Danny says. Fans can help out with the album via an Indiegogo campaign HERE.
Thus far, Danny has released “Born In The Wild”, a song for the brave kids of the #neveragain and #marchforourlives movement, and the 50s ‘Doo-Wop’ inspired “The Red Fox”.
Recently, Danny launched Season 5 of Dan’s Space Van, a mobile web-series filmed inside a customized 1978 Chevy Vandura, airbrushed in a Star Trek theme. The Show travels the world, meets interesting people and features musical guests who perform in the Van’s diamond quilted, crushed red velvet interior. So far, Season 5 has seen performances by Joel Plaskett, Skye Wallace, and Bahamas.
