Berlin-based singer and producer Dan Bodan is proud to share "A Soft Opening," the opening track from his debut LP, Soft. Debuted at Dummy Mag, they write, "Soft is a record that matches tender-voiced, heartfelt singing with experimental production from a raft of underground musicians - and its album opener 'A Soft Opening' captures that combo pretty fluidly, at once lush and engrossing, and at the same time coarse and jarring." Produced by LA duo 18+ (Houndstooth, fabric) and 14 year old Latisha Faulkner, "A Soft Opening" adapts poetry by Dena Yago of New York's K-Hole collective. Soft will be available on October 28th via DFA records and a limited edition vinyl pre-order is available here. DFA are also announcing the simultaneous release the album as a limited cassette edition via the Canadian cassette label 1080p. Ltd to 300 (worldwide mail-order) from 28th October
