Daniel Johnston / HI HOW ARE YOU
Remastered for vinyl and re-released by Daniel’s own label Eternal Yip Eye Music. Hi, How Are You was originally released in 1983. Daniel Johnston’s fingerprints are all over the twee / lo-fi / ramshackle garage blues end of American alternative music. If someone tells you that Daniel Johnston is a big kid playing The White Album; that Half Japanese are a more rocking Daniel Johnston; that Moldy Peaches are an X-rated Daniel Johnston; that Jeffrey Lewis takes his similarities as far as making his cartoons an extension of the music… they’re talking about this period.
