Giles Corey - Giles Corey (2011)

Solo project of Dan Barrett from Have a Nice Life - raw, honest, deep and personal. Although it doesn't sound much like Have a Nice Life, parts here are somewhat reminiscent of it in its textures, layers and echoes. By far one of the best records I've heard this year, it is every bit as powerful and intense as Have a Nice Life's first album but in a different way. Buy it from the link below, which comes with a 150 page book written by Dan which deals with his struggles with suicide and depression (obviously closely related to the making of the album and its themes) and took almost 4 years to write. Incredible.



  1. Amazing release. Between this and Planning For Burial - Leaving, Enemies List is becoming my favorite "new" label.

  2. Ty bby.
    I was digging around rutracker for this, but i couldn't read russian. Fuck SOPA rite?
