Daniel Johnston introduced his new album at SXSW this year—a soundtrack record titled Space Ducks that ties in with a comic book of the same name. This is a true multi-media project, with a standalone iPhone/iPad app being issued to complement all the work Johnston has been undertaking. The music on Space Ducks isn’t all by Johnston—there are contributions from Eleanor Friedberger, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Deer Tick included, alongside a number of new tracks by the man himself. The opening title track, full of Stereolab-esque Moog bloops, is worth the price of admission alone. But make sure you stick around to hear Daniel get his Beatles on for “Sense of Humor.”
