David Karsten Daniels, Fight the Big Bull, Bright Young Things 

When: Fri., July 9, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $7

During his time in North Carolina, David Karsten Daniels made idiosyncratic, futuristic indie rock with Go Machine before recording Sharp Teeth, his promising solo debut for British indie Fat Cat. The follow-up, Fear of Flying, seemed appropriately named, but it at least necessitated some sort of sea change for Daniels: That comes with I Mean to Live Here Still, a trans-American collaboration between Daniels, now in San Francisco, and Richmond brass band Fight the Big Bull. Built on moments of tortured exclamation that border on religious wailing and played with brazen disregard for indie rock custom, Still is the sort of risky move that doesn't always pay off. But when the horns are howling just so, and Daniels quavers with resilience, it's a triumphant conquest. With Bright Young Things.—Grayson Currin
