Daff from ORB has probably been listening to his fill of Syd Barrett and Geoff Goddard while recording the tunes that make up his Demo Tape. It collects material that he has recorded between 2012 and 2018 and plays almost like a chronological musical biography, available from Anti Fade. Between the lackadaisical “Knock, Knock” and almost complete-sounding “Daffrobeat”, the songs vary in their degree of complexity. Closing track “July”, which is possibly a tribute to the band of the same name, has the makings a full band recording. I for one would be excited to hear more. Daff is playing a show with Zak Olsen soon (whose own solo project came to fruition last year as well), billed as Traff & Daff.
