About this item

London based musician and artist Daniel Blumberg was born in 1990. He joined? his first band Cajun Dance Party in 2005. After releasing one album on XL,? Daniel left the band and went to Nashville where, at 18, he worked with Mark? Nevers (Lambchop, Calexico, Silver Jews).

Two years later, Daniel formed a new? band Yuck, who released their self-titled debut album on Fat Possum in 2011 to ?widespread critical acclaim and toured worldwide with bands including Dinosaur Jnr, Teenage Fanclub and Modest Mouse.

Throughout this time, Daniel also? released a series of home-recorded cassettes, 7inch singles and books of? drawings which have been distributed worldwide by respected art book distributor? Motto.

In 2012, Daniel shut the door on the world and recorded a series of? demos and sent them to a man he thought would understand?Neil Hagerty of Royal? Trux and The Howling Hex. Two months later they were recording in a Denver? studio.

Hebronix is Daniel and his friends and the album is called Unreal.

PITCHFORK: “It's not too far removed from “Rubber” the slow-melting closer of what will be Blumberg's only album with Yuck. Whereas even Yuck's most stoned moments sounded fresh-faced and chipper, "Unreal" is more withdrawn and unwholesome-- possibly due to the production work from Neil Hagerty, whose career has kept squalid, seedy rock imagery intact. "I feel...unreal," Blumberg sighs, as whirring noises and offbeat drums clatter about, seemingly unaware of his presence. "Unreal" is the sound of someone braving a hungover morning alone and trying to get his bearings before dealing with the world at large again.”
