Daniel Wohl’s debut album Corps Exquis, featuring performances by TRANSIT, Julia Holter, Aaron Roche, and So Percussion and released June 25 on New Amsterdam Records, has already been receiving a great amount of praise and critical acclaim from multiple press outlets since its release. Pitchfork’s Jayson Greene called it ”beautiful and maze-like, with sounds emanating from all directions in your listening space”, and Steve Smith of The New York Times praised it as a “boldly surreal aural experience”. The album has also been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and as Album of the Week on Q2 Music. In addition, Peter Margasak of The Chicago Reader named it a “fantastic new album” while NewMusicBox’s Molly Sheridan called it “endlessly interesting…a seamless marriage of acoustic instruments and electronics that opens its mouth and sings, up close and personal, in a language that retains its vibrant human energy”.
