2012 was a busy year for Daniel James Eaton, the musical mastermind behind local dream-folk outfit, Briffaut. In December of 2011, Eaton resolved to record a new song every day for an entire year, and, remarkably, he actually did it. The project was completed on December 15, 2012, and all the songs he recorded are now available for streaming/download HERE.

As if the satisfaction of a new year’s resolution well-accomplished wasn’t enough, Eaton also announced today on his tumblr that he has successfully raised the money needed (via Kickstarter) to release a handful of highlights from his “Year of Songs” project in vinyl form. He’s collaborated with members of Grant Sabin Band, The Flumps, The Haunted Windchimes, We Are not a Glum Lot, and El Toro de la Muerte in the recording and production of this album, and I expect that results will be thrilling for local music lovers in the Springs. Here’s a somewhat surreal video explaining the project:

Head to his kickstarter page to learn more about the album, and stay tuned for updates concerning its release.
