Austin, Texas's The Dan Ryan stopped by LA's Echoplex on Monday, August 8 to deliver a seriously psychedelic dose of heartfelt folk in support of the band's self-titled debut album, available now via Cosmic Dreamer Music.
The solo project of singer-songwriter Nathan Dixey, The Dan Ryan is a slipstream trip down memory and dreamscapes. The relaxed, atmospheric tone that permeates the debut belies the more raw and varied nature of the band's set at The Echoplex. Although the members of The Dan Ryan played earlier in the night as part of Taryn Miller's band Your Friend, I was surprised to find the same members create a very different sound and mood as The Dan Ryan.
