"Only Stranger by Dan Friedman"

This Bandcamp album release by Dan Friedman is a deep and introspective collection of songs that bring you into the artist’s mind and his world in essence. Written by Friedman, and co- produced by Cody Weinberger, it is a clean production, warm, embracing and well done in all technical aspects, as well as driving in measure.

Released January 27, 2018, it could be considered a breakout piece, compared to his prior release, Jersey Day, there is a vast difference in the style, a more experienced and mature view of his music and it is a positive move.

This 3 track release is big and bouncy, but not flamboyant and gives for a treat, the 3rd track I Know What I’ve Found, is on the album in both an electric and acoustic versions, identical songs but the acoustic is an amazing version, for it has a stronger emotional punch, but the feel is “humble” as an appreciation for another day.

"Dan Friedman - Mars"

Seit Ende Januar ist die neue DAN FRIEDMAN EP ‚Only Stranger‘ draussen. Den Opener ‚Mars‘ wollen wir euch hier herzlichst ans Herz legen. Der junge Songwriter aus Dallas ist normalerweise Frontmann der Indie Band The Publication. ‚Mars‘ hat diesen Gitarrenlauf, Wahnsinn, deshalb muss er in unsere Playlist

English translation: Since the end of January, the new DAN FRIEDMAN EP, Only Stranger ‘has been out. We want to heartily recommend the opener ‘Mars’ here. The young songwriter from Dallas is usually frontman of the indie band The Publication. ‘Mars’ has this guitar running, madness, so it has to be in our playlist. - We love that sound

"Dan Friedman - Don't Bother"

“Dallas based artist DAN FRIEDMAN is a singer/songwriter for his band Dan Friedman and The Publication. Riotous and rock n’ roll in its basic undertones, ‘Don’t Bother’ is what you can come to as a conclusion or the basis for the start of a supposition. The delightful tone of indie-disco in the teeth of the shoegazy song (especially during the bridge), Dan cultivates a dense but simple rhythmic trek. Dan’s more indie-rock framing give it another angle of appeal. Who knows. We just enjoyed the single. Whatever genre, there are times when it doesn’t really matter. This is one of those times.” - Come here floyd

"Dan Friedman steps into dark places creating edgy indie rock on "Blank Horizon""

“Dan Friedman, a Dallas Based singer and front man for Dan Friedman and The Publication steps out on his own solo project Blank Horizon. It is a cagey, moody piece of indie rock with syncopated pulses of sound, truly dreamy yet potent guitar sounds and Friedman’s earnest gritty pop vocal sound. The added vocals that may or may not be Friedman pitched down creates a haunting dark avant garde underbelly to the track. I really like this affectation. It within the conflicted sound of the song feels like either a conscience of devils on the shoulder.” - American Pancake
