Danielson: a Family Movie












Danielson: a Family Movie

I would have never known about Danielson if it had not been for Sufjan Stevens. And ironically, if there were no Danielson, there would be no Sufjan (musically speaking). I just watched a good movie/documentary over the weekend about Danielson Famile called Danielson: a Family Movie. It follows the siblings' story from their beginning when Daniel Smith was in Rutgers University, to the indie icons they (and Sufjan) have become. In the movie, you travel with them to various shows and get to see parts of their performances, along with fans who really dig the music but can't quite figure out the band. Included also are narratives by the band members, interviews, and home video clips giving a close look as to what moves this creative monster of a band known as Danielson.

And if you're still not interested, just see it to watch a band perform on stage with matching nurse uniforms. It doesn't get any cooler than that.
