Hi. My name is Dan, I'm from Auckland, and I write and record songs under the names Anecdata / Dharma Police / Planet Claire.

This year I'm aiming to not just write and record demos, but produce them to a near-releasable standard. I have too many songs in various states of incompletion - I don't want to add too much more to that pile, so have worked hard getting templates set up so anything I record this FAWM will be close to finished.


Anecdata is for rock-inspired stuff.

Dharma Police is retro-inspired synthpop, with lyrical themes often heavily leaning on the best TV show of all time, Lost.

Planet Claire is instrumental electronic noodlings and other bits and bobs. Minus my voice.

    Thanks for the listen!

  • @mattwdunn 7 weeks

    I think the JDBism in the chorus is just my accent coming out a bit. In the phrasing of โ€˜eyesโ€™ especially

  • @mattwdunn 7 weeks

    Funnily enough I was blasting the Manics not long before writing and recording this one ๐Ÿ‘Œ

  • @dancrook 7 weeks

    Canโ€™t work out if youโ€™ve established a royal blood/ jack white esque octave huge guitar sound or youโ€™ve mixed the bass and guitar part well. I was researching royal blood guitar rig and someone referenced that BMP pedal. Keen to try it out. Always on look out for new guitar sounds. Recently got Neve Preamp from UAD and that alone gets some lovey tones. But was gonna get amplitude as found it very effective emulation on the iPad .

  • @mattwdunn 7 weeks

    The acoustics are double tracked, one panned left, one panned right. Bit of reverb and eq. Thatโ€™s about it

  • @imaginary1 7 weeks

    Um excuse me? How the fuck have you made 31 totally-mixed arrangements and productions, this output is incredible. Im really impressed with your vibe and sheer amount of music.

  • @berni1954  8 weeks

    Looks like they don't have an i-pad version of the CZ series. ๐Ÿ˜ข

  • @mattwdunn 8 weeks

    Tell me about it. Recording acoustic has been difficult. The mic keeps picking up the kids fighting in the other room ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • @mattwdunn 8 weeks

    They arenโ€™t for everyone. Tracks like Dance Macabre, Witch Image and Square Hammer are absolute bangers though. Even my wife likes them ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • @mattwdunn 8 weeks

    Youโ€™re too kind. Thanks for the great comments. Any guitar solo you hear on my stuff is actually played on a White Gibson Les Paul Custom signed by the man himself

  • @mattwdunn 8 weeks

    The Manics? My favourite band of all time.

  • @fonte  Feb 14

    Ahh thanks, yeah just amp sims I'm afraid but got a good sound from them. I do like to mic up my amp but not for a song like that!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 12

    Thanks for the comments - these days the guitars are always DI'd into the desk, either straight from my effects chain or from the Blackstar's line out. No mics involved, which keeps the nighbours happy (I suspect if I wound up the Marshall to get a decent tone, people would start making tutting noises...)

  • @torniojaws Feb 6

    Sounds fun ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 6

    I always like your stuff, haven't made my way over here yet I make sure to visit post-skirmish.

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 6

    Sorry about that I never miss a chance to neglect some detail.

  • @gjcoolone Feb 6

    Jealous of your country's covid response system, wish we had something like that in the US over the last year lol.

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 5

    I have pretty much Bowie's entire catalogue. Saw him live several times here and in the US. But I hadn't given "Earthling" a spin for years. "Outside " was my pick from that era...

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 5

    Ha - you may have a point, even if I wasn't consciously thinking of Earthling (or any Bowie, in fact). But I just listened to "Little Wonder" and Reeves Gabrels does some stuff in there that sounds kinda familiar!

  • @sapient  Feb 5

    Ha ha! Thanks! I do strive to make the metalliest METAL ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @atitlan  Feb 5

    Ha! Don't tell JMJ I've got access to his archives. Seriously, flattered by that comparison - thanks.

  • @guitarpatz83  Feb 5

    Thanks for the comment - very kind and appreciate the Duran Duran shout!

  • @corinnecurcio  Feb 4

    ๐Ÿ˜€ No worries about "boomer" It's a great song, anyway

  • @toms  Feb 2

    How do I beef up drums? I've never been good at mixing anyway. Just don't have the ears or something.

  • @corinnecurcio  Feb 2

    Thanks for your comment on "Menace" - Don't know what's the "Rocky Horror" reference in my song though ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @rops  Feb 1

    Thanks for the feedback on "Worthless!" Mixing is definitely not my strong suit. Any tips for cleaning up vocals? Was it more the mix or delivery? Thanks again!

  • @ampersandman  Feb 1

    I don't understand ... I just listened to your first song, and now I logged in to tell you how freaking great it is ... and now it's gone?

  • @chariotbaldwin  Feb 1

    Hey Dan - we probably don't really know each other at all but I'm a kiwi who's based in AU and became an Aussie in the end. Good luck for 2021 and maybe it be fruitful with lots of completed demos!!

  • @gm7  Jan 30

    'Does Anyone Remember Helen Clark, Bobby Fischer or 911?',
    wicked..nice lead around the 1;15-1.23...๐Ÿ‘

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 16

    Hope to hear from you this year and hope all is well in Kiwiland.
