Daniel Higgs is the new frontman for Swedish experimental rock band The Skull Defekts. This makes me happy. Their latest album, Peer Amid, is out on Thrill Jockey and the band is touring. This is a lot more ‘rock’ than the other stuff Higgs has been up to lately, and there’s a ’90s vibe to the new line-up of the band, but I still dig it. It kinda makes me hope there will be a Lungfish reunion soon.
