It's no surprise that someone is making a biopic about Daniel Johnston: the story of a man who lives with his parents, suffers from bipolar disorder and spends time in institutions, yet is hammering away at a toy piano in his brother's garage, coming up with songs that will be compared to the melodic brilliance of the Beatles, covered by Tom Waits and described by Kurt Cobain as "the greatest on earth". Johnston's first set of songs, 1983's Yip/Jump Music, contains the obsessions, themes and recurring characters that define his oeuvre: the Beatles, unrequited love and Casper the Friendly Ghost, who "is smiling through his own personal hell". The recordings are lo-fi, but the constructions perfect. The coupling of 1983's Hi How Are You and 1985's Continued Story illustrates the Texan's rapid progression, skipping from troubadour blues to big-band ballads. As illness takes hold, his mood darkens, but Johnston doesn't edit himself. In the extraordinary Walking the Cow, his only remaining thought is to exercise the animal, but the task itself holds the key to salvation. Whether hilarious or harrowing, he touches you in a way that no other artist can.

Terrific haul this - a sprawling album of impish electronics, song-sketches and soundscapes home-recorded by Ariel Pink back in the late '90s when he was still plain ol' Ariel Rosenberg.
