2006 Native Fiction Records. More By Leopold and his Fiction. See All. Darling Destroyer.
Leopold and His Fiction's latest album, Ain't No Surprise, draws on everything from lost loves to "hollow street lights that still call your name. Even the recording process of Ain't No Surprise has its own narrative. From living rooms, to closets, to attics, "the album was recorded anywhere I could manage to record," says James. James even began visiting a 1920s playhouse in the middle of the night to get in some quality recording time, the effects of which can be heard in the natural reverb that saturates the album
Leopold and his Fiction. Leopold and his Fiction have been working with GRAMMY®-nominated producer Chris Frenchie Smith (The Datsuns, Slayer, Jet, The Dandy Warhols, et. in recording and capturing a captivating musical journey that is as relentless as it is inspiring. Frenchie saw our show and listened to our records, says James.
For Leopold and His Fiction, creating an album as sublimely chaotic as Darling Destroyer took a lifetime of cultivating a kaleidoscopic musicality. Born and raised in Detroit, Daniel first began making music after finding a forgotten about guitar in his grandmother’s basement as a child. It had only two strings, but I took it home and started studying immediately, he recalls. Between their 2009 sophomore release Ain’t No Surprise and 2012’s 3, Daniel co-founded the folk outfit Cowboy and Indian, and spent several years touring and recording with the Austin-based band. Cowboy and Indian picked up momentum really fast; it was something I had to do, Daniel says. It wasn’t that Leopold ever stopped, but it was clearly imperative that this other project, and these other people, needed me as much as I needed them.
