Local singer and composer Danbert Nobacon has released a new album, called “Stardust to Darwinstuff” that will be available on Friday (April 21).
The album is Nobacon’s first in seven years, and most of the songs were written in the Methow Valley, he said.
Nobacon, who lives on Twisp River Road and frequently performs locally, was a member of the British band Chumbawamba, known for its anarchist bent and performances in support of environmental and other causes.
The new album expresses “opposition to Trump’s war on art and science,” Nobacon said.
By Nobacon and the Axis of Dissent, the album features three local musicians, Okan’ Annie Emmenegger, Anna Dooley and Holly Brielle, along with some Seattle-based musicians and singers.
“As it is in many ways a science and art themed album, for the release I will be attending the March for Science in Washington D.C. on April 22, and will be playing shows in D.C. and New York over that weekend,” Nobacon said.
Nobacon has also produced a music video for the album with local videographer Jamie Petitto and cinematographer Steve Foreman.
