why we love this

The album captures a familiar coolness. A city setting comes to mind, where density and concrete slabs are offset by fragments of softness: a periwinkle kissing the air between sidewalk cracks, a sunset so vivid, its colors ooze like a candle flame burning for hours on end.

about the record

Wave to Mikey, the fourth album from the Los Angeles-based actor, musician, and photographer Danny Lane, is a nocturnal, neon-lit ode to the friendships that shape us. “I made this album for my friend Mikey from back home,” Danny explains. “We were pretty much inseparable for a large part of our lives, and our musical and social minds were always in sync in a special way. Then with age, we drifted apart, especially since I moved to Los Angeles. This album is just a little wave hello to an old friend and a kindred spirit.”

Equal parts avant-garde composition, instrumental city-pop, ambient, Kankyō Ongaku (environmental music), and Fourth World music, Wave to Mikey is an impressionistic and reflective cycle of eleven richly detailed memory portraits. Throughout the album, the influence of Jon Hassell, Arthur Russell, Hiroshi Yoshimura, and Yellow Magic Orchestra hangs in the air like late-night mist, adding character but never overshadowing the rhythmic ambience of Danny’s musical visions.
