Branden Daniel & Everybody Gets Laid is bringing you into the happening with Psych'd out, Garage tone Rock n' Roll. After garnering much buzz and attention as one of the “bands to see” in the NW Independent music scene this body rockin', roots-inspired front man has finally delivered a recording that is as sonically powerful as his live shows. "Instead of sitar-worshipping, hookah-huffing side of the Stones, Daniel looks to the Mason-Dixon, blues-loving, pelvic-thrusting side and dials it up 24 notches."
* Ari Spool, the Stranger Seattle
For his newest EP Release “Self Titled” on Flotation Records Junaury 13th 2009 Branden Daniel and his latest band members of Everybody Gets Laid (Kyle Lawrence on Bass, and Holly Gits on Drums) recorded with Producer John Goodmanson. Known for his ability to capture the loudest, raw intensity (with such groups as the Gossip, Sleater-Kinney and most recently the Schoolyard Heroes), John’s work with Branden seems to accentuate the bombastic and explosive energy, known well to those who attend their live shows. Great examples of this strength in sonic power can be found on tracks like “Come On”, “Love button” and “Luau”. Still all the crunch and fuzz doesn’t over shadow the soulful blues and song crafting abilities that are revealed in the EP’s songs like the 12string Guitar bomp “Work Like Your Man” and the quieter and more vulnerable “Lonely, Low down”. Best put by Goodmanson, “[this EP] sounds like early 70’s Blue Cheer had a Love child with Iggy and the Stooges.”
This newest recording marks as EP number three for Branden Daniel.
The First EP 2005’s Love It which was self released, self produced and
recorded at Mississippi Studios in Portland, OR gained Branden a spot
in the Portland Indie band hype as well as an opportunity to start touring the
West Coast. The second EP 2006’s Back Down was also recorded in
Portland at Revolver studios with Producer and Brian Jonestown Massacre
Bassist Collin Hegna. The EP Back Down was again a self released record but
produced Branden’s first single “All or Nothing: Back Down” and was responsible for getting Branden Daniel played on many NW Radio stations, Blogs/Podcasts, KEXP, even the BBC. Local Papers such as Portland’s the Mercury and Seattle’s the Stranger also took notice with high praise.
Planning to aggressively tour the states throughout most of 2009, Branden Daniel continues to deliver stunning live shows and even more exciting music working harder and harder to not let any reputation precede him. Hell bent on evolving and known by those close to him as an artist that constantly creates, Branden Daniel currently has two more EP’s of innovative, mold-breaking songs all ready to record. An artist of the people that lives to create and share Branden Daniel it seems will never run out of words and music to gift to us. As he sings in Self Titled’s second song Work like your man “like no other that’s been, Babe, you know what I’m sayin’, I wouldn’t work like your man”
What people are saying about Branden Daniel:
One of “Seattle’s best Young bands, with nods towards Mudhoney and the Rolling Stones.”
*Patrick MacDonald, Seattle Times, Seattle
“BAND OF THE WEEK” “combines a turbo-blues guitar riff with some of the snottiest vocals this side of Iggy Pop for a funky disaster of a dance number."
*Ari Spool, the Stranger, Seattle
"WOW!" Says The Mercury, Portland
"There is a whole lot of gritty John Spencer Blues Explosion showmanship in the thrusting, dirty rock n’ roll howl of Branden Daniel & Everybody Gets Laid. Bible thumpers, cover your precious ears, because Daniel’s sleazy guitar riffs are so evil they could be used as recruitment tools for Satan himself. Larry Norman was right; the Devil really does have the best music."
*Courtney Ferguson, the Mercury, Portland
"Branden’s stripped-down brand of garage-ingrained rock n’ roll is guaranteed to have you movin’ and groovin’ and beggin’ for more!”
* Kris K, Reviewer Magazine, Los Angeles
" The last time I saw them (which, coincidentally, was the first time I saw them) Branden Daniel was wriggling across the floor by the first song of their show. Amazingly—impossibly—their set made the beeline from the baseboards of the Comet’s stage up into the dollar-tacked rafters. Combining the sweet simplicity of a barbed guitar hook with the punk ferocity of a three piece, BD and the band work hard to get as sweaty (if not sweater than) the audience, a pretty fancy feat for a group that inspires a hip-shake-swagger in even the most arrhythmic of listener. "
