Note From Doron Diamond: Track Number 9, Job Hunt, is actually the wrong version that made it onto the album. The correct and vastly superior version can be downloaded for free on my Myspace page. www.myspace.com/dorondiamond Thank you and I hope anyone who bought/listened to the album gets to hear the correct version!
Great (did we mention 100% homemade) debut album. Remember when you first heard an album like "Hour of Bewilderbeast" by Badly Drawn Boy, Fi by Bibio, or All-Time Quarterback by Ben Gibbard? Remember thinking that you stumbled on a gem of an album, both lo-fi, yet totally emcompassing and charming, and you had it ALL to yourself? Yeah, it's kind of like that, especially considering Doron is all but completely unknown. No hype here, just a solid (and seriously good) listen. A true DIY inspiration for any of us who treat music like a serious hobby. Strongly recommended.
Doron Diamond, a recent graduate from UCSC is a self-taught, multi-instrumental-mathematical-psychologist-singer-songwriter-arranger-composer-trapeze-visual-stimulant-cognitive-artist from Beverly Hills who plays no less than 39 instruments. Music is his life. He doesn't have a band, so everything you hear is done by him alone, although one day, he'd love to be in a band, tour the country, and start a homemade musical community/label where his friends/family and anyone else can make wild-star-eyed music together. Help make that dream a reality, and please enjoy the music!
