Themes in American Friction
ABOUT THE ALBUM: 'Themes in American Friction is the story of my coming-of-age in America between the 1980s and 2000s. It's a story of family, lost faith, first love, mortality and despair in an era with no Great Depression or World War. I wrote it down and put it to music because I needed to get it all out somehow, and because I needed to make sense of how growing up in my generation could have been so uneventful and terrifying at the same time.' - Daniel Machado Themes in American Friction is Daniel Machado's fourth full-length album and his sixth overall release since 2001.
