In Search of Light is the full-length follow-up to the well-received Fountain (RS 057CD), Danny Paul Grody's debut solo release. Many listeners no doubt recognize Grody from his work in San Francisco-based groups Tarentel and The Drift. As a solo artist, he produces wistful, poignant music culled principally from acoustic guitar and synthesizer. Grody's work recalls aspects of the post-Takoma school in that fingerpicked, cyclical melodies make up the crux of many of his recordings. However, he also masterfully avoids the pitfalls of the genre, invariably favoring concision, lyricism and ideas over dexterity and flare. In listening to In Search of Light, one can't help but imagine these recordings appearing on some lost private issue California folk LP from the late '70s- such is the timelessness of Grody's aesthetic. As an album, In Search of Light is an assured and beautiful statement, an aural tracking shot of the California coast that feels as old and familiar as the sun. Artwork by Billy Joe Miller. Mastered by James Plotkin. LP in edition of 500."

Cat. number: SOD90
Year: 2011

All songs recorded and mixed at home between fall of 2010 and spring of 2011 using acoustic and electric guitars, harmonium, synthesizers, bows, and bells.
