Alongside jazz and Indian music, Dan Weiss is equally at home in metal and electronica. The stark contrasts, but also the similarities between these worlds fuel his band Starebaby. On the eponymous album, Weiss and co. have created fascinating works, sometimes dark and complex and sometimes dreamy and cinematic, with for example a track dedicated to Angelo Badalamenti, composer of the Twin Peaks soundtrack.
