Dangermuffin at Hopmonk Tavern
Charleston, SC's Dangermuffin releases its newest studio album to the Coastal Empire in this special show at the Post. Themes of sea, sun, and spiritual connection weave through the eight-track release combining a cohesive blend of Alt-Americana, Island grooves, Folk and Jam. Dangermuffin is touring throughout the spring and summer in support of Heritage, the band's sixth album. On Heritage, the lyrics contemplate the universal human connection to our ancestors, ancient traditions and symbols while yearning for humanity to get back to its roots. It is an audible showcase weaving introspective lyrics with catchy, nimble guitar riffs. Six of the eight songs were recorded acoustically adding to the album's organic feel; and although Dangermuffin has performed as a trio for many years, the recent addition of their newest member Markus Helander of Finland on drums makes Heritage the band's most progressive album to date. Fittingly, the album's soaring vocals were recorded in Charleston's historic Unitarian Church, a National Historic Landmark built in 1772.
