"...Down to earth and laid back, it has none of the musical tension of trying too hard or the injection of false emotions. Suburban folky and bohemian chic, it [darling one year] ties up agreeably layered and distorted vocals into an angst-ridden, quirky pop as catchy as The Strokes but easily as mysteriously engaging as James Keenan Maynard..." - https://www.tradebit.com

Reviews
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A friend gave me FINE BY ME while I was travelling and it seemed to click with exactly where I was at, wherever that was, becoming a kind of 'processing' album for me. It was at least six months later that I actually met Daniel when he played a support to Carla Werner at the Hopetown Hotel in Sydney. It was a heartfelt and intimate live experience hearing live versions of those songs I'd gotten to know so well interspersed with songs from a new album he'd brought with him, 'flashback'. Needless to say, flashback went into immediate rotation on our car stereo.

flashback was, like FINE BY ME, a sleeper album. It definitely took a few listens before we caught ourselves knowing lines and humming along. While it was still an album predominately based around Daniel's voice and acoustic guitar, flashback definitely had an edgier and more varied feel from it's predecessor. There was a sense of adventure, a feeling that you were learning new things along with him. Daniel's songwriting had become cheekier, more socially observant and less apologetic in some way.

Starting with the clip clop tribute to a friendship song 'His name's Tom', the distortion tinged pleading of 'Sarah', the quiet/heavy/quiet of theft song 'Good job?' and the acoustic semi-pop bounce of 'Boy racer car sale', flashback immediately sets a few different tones. It then drops into the melancholy strum of gambling addicted 'Your winning way' and the ever so gentle mourning tone of 'Rest'. The much needed lift back up comes in the form of trippy title track 'flashback' and the high energy run of 'Look Mama!' [apparently using the text from a postcard to his mother] which leads into the lyrical loping [around what I'm sure is Bondi Beach] of 'Her piano', this song also gives a hint that Daniel at this point had set upon defining his own course for that immediate future music wise. Quirky harmonica laced 'A french girl' brings things back up to a quicker stroll with the happy remembrance of an exotic past love and the bluesy, story telling style of 'Not a candidate' carries you into the album ending and curiously titled 'Fuck the gardeners' [an obvious play on gardeners being the advocates of the 'tall poppy syndrome' - a NZ/Australian phenomenon - in their cutting down of anyone standing taller than the accepted status quo]. After this up and down ride it's a driving and motivating end to the album, leaving you with the feeling to go out, stand tall and be proud.

Inspiring to see that Daniel is following that feeling himself.

His name's Tom [song from that desert campfire]
music & lyrics by Daniel Gannaway

i met a man who did not stand but soon turned out to be my friend amidst a world of mock and a world of false soul he stood by me even though he was told don't hang out with him he does not fit in no not into our scheme of things 'cause he does this and you know that he does that he does not fit into all the parameters we've set now i think we're about as far apart as these oceans are wide and it's not too often we float side by side you know life changes rearranges we all go through such different phases he don't see much of them anymore doesn't concern himself with their scene at all i hang out with him he does not fit in no not into they're scheme of things 'cause he does this and you know he does that does not fit into all the parameters they've set well it never bothers him because he can still turn he makes up his own mind does whatever he likes 'cause he is a man he is a man he is a man that does not walk within a flock of sheep all talking in unison he is a man decides for himself he does not listen to everybody else oh he is making his own lines on these different waves he is not stuck up on these fashionable things oh he is turning in his own way riding fat sticks on his knees he is a man does not stand he don't fit in i'm proud to call him my friend

Your winning way
music & lyrics by Daniel Gannaway

tab's your solitary you lock yourself away you lock yourself away walking down queen street after closing time hoping tomorrows another day you'll get your winning way and when you get home you lay nothing on the table nothing i can count and then we scream and shout you know i love you baby but will you ever learn not to bet your rent on the races on your winning way your winning way your winning way your winning way remember '93 our long distance fascination grew so i sent you the money to meet me in fiji but you bet your ticket on a sure one could of been the third of the day you lied you'd given up on gambling you'd given up your winning way your winning way your winning way your winning way i'm asking you are you winning now? are you winning now? when will you admit it's a disease you got when will you admit you're hooked if you can't realise this now it's the last time i say goodbye for i can't solve this problem of your winning way your winning way your winning way your winning way i'm asking you are you winning now?

Rest
music & lyrics by Daniel Gannaway

a thousand butterfly lights set free tonight a rainbow crossing a sky set abright you were my love you lit the candles and you kissed my bruised chin late at the table i said rest rest your eyes rest rest your mind rest rest your eyes rest rest your mind sleeping silences and in between you told me how you'd leave me soon leave me soon and open open me like a cavern empty of touch and feel i would be still and then overflow your silences would show so rest rest your eyes rest rest your mind rest rest your eyes rest rest your mind i said i said come to me before you leave me soon come to me with your eyes to tired come to me with fireworks for tears come to me silent in your head oh won't you rest rest your eyes rest rest your mind rest rest your eyes rest rest your mind rest my sweetheart rest my sweetheart rest

Flashback
music & lyrics by Daniel Gannaway

one of those pre-dawns where you shock sleeping seagulls into flight with your mini-snap camera you try to infiltrate a flock you've come down for sunrise in a pronounced acid high and you chase these hazy moments hoping you'll translate your mind but will you see it again as you are seeing it? but will you see it again as you're coming down? down the beach plunge your friends aeroplanes heading into swim amidst laughter and tumbling you're all down to bare skin how do you describe mother ocean? as she rocks you uncertainly a wild turquoise that envelopes then leaves you phosphorescently what of the sun signalling a new day's begun? gently lending you a delicate glimpse soon she'll breath fire from her lips but will you see it again as you are seeing it? but will you see it again as you're coming down? down down down you never want to come down wrapped up in a blanket on a balcony a hot cup of tea it all seems to be a dream can any of it be reseen?

Her piano
music & lyrics by Daniel Gannaway

A french girl
music & lyrics by Daniel Gannaway

i was down and out in that far away place when i met a french girl with a smile on her face she spoke perfect english with a continental twist she had me laughing off depressions mist she said the clouds don't know why they float up in the sky but you know why you feel to die you're missing love through and through and i know just what it is we need to do a french girl loved me she really loved me a french girl loved me she really loved me you say i sing of girls it's the same old song but i love the way they make you feel you belong to this human race we're not lost in space that's how i felt waking up in her place this french girl loved me she really loved me this french girl loved me she really loved me as it happens we saw each other a while she taught me some french and taught me to smile she said live for the moment in your every day and now that you're happy you must be on your way see she had things to do great paintings to view a deal on her art a big city start there was too much to her that did not meet the eye now she's my friend but i remember the time this french girl loved me she really loved me this french girl loved me she really loved me

Not a candidate
music & lyrics by Daniel Gannaway © 1999

seems i once met a girl knocked my head under my heels now i step back i hate to admit but i know why i was so into it she stripped my thoughts naked but i was mistaken i could never have found love with her looks had simply made me go ga-ga funny how my feelings changed when she liked one of my friends it taught me a lesson i could only learn the hard way one more lesson in life's great big play i thought honey it's one of two and i've nearly waited for you but there's too many fish in this great big sea now i'm ditching in i guess i'm gonna swim free oh i fell in love with the idea of love oh i fell in love with the idea of love oh i fell in love with the idea of love oh i fell in love with the idea of love when it was just lust lust lust lust a week passed and he dumped her then she came a calling silly girl said i was a new candidate but i'd moved on or did i not state that? her beauty was a stunning thing but in the end what did it mean? she was so pretty but there was nowt to say yet somehow i nearly made the same mistake her body was so fine but then i had rediscovered my pride i thought who am i second best? i said no no no you better take a ride honey yeah go on and take a ride honey yeah go on and take that ride oh no won't be any more hot loving oh well that loving wasn't real anyway see i fell in love with the idea of love i fell in love with the idea of love i fell in love with the idea of love i fell in love with the idea of love when it was just lust lust lust lust
