7-inch featuring two previously unreleased recordings: Hurray for the Riff Raff’s “Daniella” will appear on the A-side backed with a live version of Benjamin Booker’s “Violent Shiver.”
“Daniella” is one of the first songs that Alynda Lee Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff ever wrote and she re-recorded it at Electric Lady Studios this past winter exclusively for the limited edition 7-inch. The band won many new fans with its stand-out performance at last year’s Newport Folk Festival®, which led up to the release of Hurray for the Riff Raff’s critically acclaimed album Small Town Heroes.
“Violent Shiver” is the first single from New Orleans-based Benjamin Booker, whose music has been hailed as “a quaking blues punk blitz” by NME. Booker will be making his Newport Folk Festival debut this year just before the release of his self-titled debut album, out August 19. The version of "Violent Shiver" that appears on the 7-inch was recorded in March 2014 at Good Danny's Studio in Austin, TX during a session for the online blog Daytrotter.
