Throwback Thursday: 1990

Before Daniel Johnston’s SXSW manic breakdown of 1990, Daniel traveled to New York City to record his first true studio album with the Shimmy Disc guru, Kramer.

1990 is a haunting, honest, and gut wrenching album that will break your heart while sending terrifying shivers down your spine.

Be sure to listen to this one all the way through. It’s one of the greatest lofi albums ever made in my humble opinion. It’s truly a masterpiece.

Peace and love from Antofagasta, Chile.
