Album : Dolfish : I’d Rather Disappear Than Stay The Same

The title to Dolfish’s first full-length is a rallying cry I can easily get behind. Even if Dolfish — a/k/a Max Sollisch–  is only 23, getting stuck in a rut is an issue that can plague any honest person, at any age. Still, I don’t feel that Sollisch has anything to worry about. His unusual blend of inside-the-microphone, confessional vocals, engaging textures, and blistering beats isn’t in danger of becoming anyone else’s flavor-of-the-day, let alone of the month. It doesn’t feel like he could get stuck, even if he wanted to. Which can be kind of an exhausting way to live. But it is, in my opinion, endemic of being fully alive.

I’d Rather Disappear Than Stay The Same can be obtained from the nice people who’ve released it at Afternoon Records.  Or you might want to pick up a copy at one of Dolfish’s upcoming tour stops, found below.
