Title: The Measure of Mystery
Format: Cass
Label: Gnomelife
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"The Measure of Mystery" was recorded (by Fletcher Tucker of Bird By Snow & Yurt) on cassette tape in Big Sur, California in the late night hours when the 29th of October was gradually becoming the 30th (2011). Song flowed forth from Source in a circular redwood room perched just above a waterfall, which itself flows steadily toward its own source (the Pacific Ocean). You may observe the sounds of both ocean and river on these recordings...and a closer listen may also reward you with the sounds of starlight, mycelium growth, molecular revolution, and an untold number of cosmic musics. This tape is a 45 minute magnetic fossilization of Daniel Higgs energy field. It is divided between three tracks of epic proportion: a revelational instrumental banjo improvisation, an entheogenic song performed on banjo and larynx, and an ecstatic mythopoetic recitation. Fans of Daniels previous albums are surely aware that an exceptional recording of "Say God" already exists, this new incarnation however is nearly twice as long with over 100 verses! Truly an awesome artifact, offered to you in the hope that it will inspire awe. Photcard by Fumie Ishii. This volume of Echomancy is represented by the symbol for the planet Mercury." - Gnomelife.

Title: Ancestral Songs
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"A brand new solo release from legendary poet, painter, Jews harpist, tattoo artist, and singer and lyricist of LUNGFISH, THE PUPILS and CONE OF LIGHT, DANIEL HIGGS. Higgs has an unparalleled presence in both body and voice, and this, combined with hypnotic repetition, gives the material on Ancestral Songs both a loose discipline and an immense yet serpentine power. Ancestral Songs is comprised of apocalyptic tunes, a banjo raag, mellifluous birdsong, and the sci-fi-sounding duet of a searing Jews harp and toy piano. "Are You of the Body?" brings out the electric tamboura tone and an accompanying acoustic guitar to melt the spine. A distorted motorik guitar riff propels Ancestral Songs to a close by focusing on the consistent tone and vibration that flows throughout the album." - Holy Mountain.

Title: Metempsychotic Melodies
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"DANIEL HIGGS returns with his second full length recording for Holy Mountain after last years critically acclaimed Ancestral Songs and his contribution. Atomic Yggdrasil Tarot, to Thrill Jockeys series of books collecting art and music. Metempsychotic Melodies continues to document Higgs rise as a solo performer. Raw picked acoustic guitar drones dominate Metempsychic Melodies as the instrumental "Universal Salutation" fades into the waking dream soliloquy of observation "Love Abides." "Leontocephaline Rhapsody" is a long waltzy drone with enough spooky atmosphere for one to think that it could have been recorded at Sunshine studios as there is a heavy Vogel vibe to the whole thing. Rumor has it engineer TIM GREEN told Higgs that he had to fade the track otherwise they were going to be arrested. Vocals return for the closing track "All Cherished Things" an epic about change, sound and transformation." -Holy Mountain.

Title: The Fools Sermon, Part 1
Format: LP
Label: Ideologic Organ
Country: France
Price: $22.00
"Part 1 of The Fools Sermon as composed by and recorded by Daniel Higgs. Features Eli Winograd on bass and bass keyboard and Fumie Ishii on drums & voice and Higgs on banjo and voice. "Daniel Higgs once told me that the Earth is actually in its 34th life cycle. That everything has been conceived, created, grown, withered and ultimately been destroyed a grand total of thirty three times to date. As for quite how long this ourobouros-esque pattern will continue, he never enunciated. For enunciation is at the very heart of The Fools Sermon. Or I should say Ee-nun-see-a-she-on, as language in the hands of Higgs becomes a play-thing; syllables coil and retreat as if in eternal competition over the course of this 35 minute address. Anyone versed in Higgs vocabulary over his 30 year-plus career as musician, poet and orator, The Fools Sermon will feel like a worthy distillation of his other-world view: a raw vision of the sacred and the profane, the physical and the metaphysical, The Proterozoic and the present. At points, the results conjure a Flannery OConnor penned pulpit-bound preacher elucidating as a huddle of Tribe Records personnel channel Amiri Barakas Black Dada Nihilismus; at others the narcoleptic exotica of Eden Ahbez shakes hands with Blind Joe Death. One imagines Gene Roddenberrys Captain turning his attention to the Philosophers Stone, to boldly go where no man and everyman has been before and forever will go again." -- Anthony Sylvester, 2016. Cut by Christoph Grote-Beverborg at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Cover photo by Fumie Ishii. Back cover photo by Micke Keysendal." - Ideologic Organ.

In recent years, Higgs has released a number of solo outings including the record / book combination Atomic Yggdrasil Tarot. On much of his solo work, Higgs uses very varied instrumentation, including acoustic and electric guitar, upright pianos, banjo and Jews harp, and generally records entirely at home on cassette recorder. Higgs has always worked in the mediums of music and art simultaneously, and for his Artist Music Journal Higgs mined his archives and notebooks from the past 10+ years. The original works were photographed to scale." - Soundscreen Design.

Title: Say God
Format: Double LP
Label: Thrill Jockey
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"In recent years, Higgs has released a number of solo outings that can only be described as the ultimate in isolation, worlds away from the hypnotic, communal rock of his band, Lungfish. Higgs follows up the 2007 album/book release Atomic Yggdrasil Tarot with his new double album Say God. Say God is an album of gospel songs and poems as presently received by this Daniel Higgs. Recorded with the help and enthusiasm of David Andrew Sitek, who graciously provided this Daniel Higgs with an environment in which to prosper and enjoy the adventure of recording, or, if you will, the ensnaring of songs as they migrate through time and mind, that they might be heard many places at once, with the singer absent. Song seeds cast abroad, that their message, The Advent Of The Songway, the Way Across, might take root, twist and fruit, light for all. It is the simple hope of this Daniel Higgs that the album Say God may be of any use to the listener, may serve the listener, may accompany the listener in clairaudient fellowship." -Thrill Jockey
