Daniel Ouellette unveils his new full-length album, and it is undoubtedly different. It makes for an experience like no other. It has quirky lyrics and vocals, but in some extraordinary way, they fit the style altogether.

From singing in various languages to the unusual vocal style, this album has undoubtedly an entertainment factor,

Although it is very different, something about it keeps making me think of Bill Nelson because the unusual vocal style brings this to the front.

One thing is for sure you can not put this album in any typical genre as it will not fit. It is unique in so many ways.

It is effortless to listen to, so give it a listen.



Post-Punk artist Daniel Ouellette has just unveiled his new full-length LP, El Salon (A Happy Home Is A Haunted Home).

El Salon is a post-punk, synth-pop, new wave concept album that sings of the pleasures and difficulties of life within a haunted house. The album is also multi-lingual. Daniel will sing to you in Spanish about a werewolf, in English about a Ouija board, in Portuguese about a haunted house and French about bats at Christmas time.

The title of the album, El Salón has multiple meanings. In Spanish it can reference a classroom, an art studio, a living room and of course, a salon. Daniel Ouellette says, "The best place I have learned to speak is in living rooms with loved ones who speak Spanish and this the title is in honor of my mates, my loved ones to whom I speak Spanish."

The album's subtitle pulls the concept of the album together.  Should our protagonist buy a house that may be haunted? Each song tells a tale of joy or horror; what a home can be. Maybe some of us never want to leave our homes and others need to run. Or should we dance around our living room perhaps like a specter?

Der Post-Punk-Künstler Daniel Ouellette hat gerade seine neue LP El Salon (A Happy Home Is A Haunted Home) vorgestellt.

El Salon ist ein Post-Punk-, Synth-Pop-New-Wave-Konzeptalbum, das von den Freuden und Schwierigkeiten des Lebens in einem Spukhaus singt. Das Album ist auch mehrsprachig. Daniel wird Ihnen auf Spanisch über einen Werwolf, auf Englisch über ein Ouija-Brett, auf Portugiesisch über ein Spukhaus und Französisch über Fledermäuse zur Weihnachtszeit singen.

Der Titel des Albums El Salón hat mehrere Bedeutungen. Auf Spanisch kann es sich auf ein Klassenzimmer, ein Kunststudio, ein Wohnzimmer und natürlich auf einen Salon beziehen. Daniel Ouellette sagt: "Der beste Ort, an dem ich sprechen gelernt habe, ist in Wohnzimmern mit Lieben, die Spanisch sprechen, und dieser Titel ist zu Ehren meiner Freunde, meiner Lieben, mit denen ich Spanisch spreche".

Der Untertitel des Albums zieht das Konzept des Albums zusammen. Sollte unser Protagonist ein Haus kaufen, das heimgesucht werden könnte? Jedes Lied erzählt eine Geschichte von Freude oder Horror; was ein Zuhause sein kann. Vielleicht wollen einige von uns nie ihre Häuser verlassen und andere müssen rennen. Oder sollten wir vielleicht wie ein Gespenst in unserem Wohnzimmer tanzen?
