Daniel Higgs has always been held in the highest esteem by us here at Southern, becoming an almost totemic figure in the process. Certainly an appreciation for his work, and the canon of the band Lungfish, has been a job requirement for all the staff who've worked with us over the years. He has graced us with visits from time to time, and his London shows have always been mustattend events for Southern alumni. Naturally, a Latitudes recording would be the jewel in the crown for our catalogue, yet frustratingly, circumstance and opportunity always seemed to elude us. Ever patient, we tried not to get too giddy when the stars finally aligned, and a session was booked at the studio to coincide with a lightning tour to our shores. But given the timelessness of his vision, we needn't have worried about such trifling matters as scheduling. Like passages from some archaic ur-song, Higgs summoned the elements, and sound issued forth. We are incredibly grateful that he allowed us to capture it electrically and preserve it for your enjoyment and enlightenment. - Tony Sylvester, July 2012

Daniel Higgs

Say God

    Daniel Higgs is a musician and artist from Baltimore, Maryland on whose behalf superlatives are destined to fail. It’s not that his artistic output – spanning three decades, numerous albums, books of poetry and collections of drawings – simply eludes classification, it defies it. Often we hear that a true work of art is meant to speak for itself, and with the work of Daniel Higgs the maxim rings truer than ever. Daniel is best known for his work as the lyricist and frontman of Lungfish, whose work on Dischord Records has spanned 3 decades. In addition to his work with Thrill Jockey, Daniel has released solo work on Holy Mountain, Northern Liberties, Open Mouth and Ideal Recordings. "Say God" is an album of gospel songs and poems, recorded with the help and enthusiasm of David Andrew Sitek (TV On The Radio).
