While I’m starting to really tire of the whole “EP” thing right now, Danyew EP really stuck out to me. (Phil) Danyew, a multi-instrumentalist, put together a seemingly flawless collection of six songs, all special in their own way. It’s a unique keyboard-driven worshipful experience; with the epic “The Closer We Are,” the acoustic-based “Beautiful King,” and the folk-infused “Nothing Without You,” there’s something different for each track. It’s a solid project through and through, and though it’s brief, it’s a good sampler of what Danyew has to offer. My only complaint is that I really wish it was a full-length album (but hey, if that’s the only downside, that can be a good thing!). Maybe it will get expanded sometime in the future, but for now, it’s one of the pleasant surprises as well as among the best of 2009. – Roger Gelwicks
