Rocket, the trio's second full-length album, is filled with contributions from the dense orbit of talented players that make Austin a magnet for the creatives. Rocket tapped into local assets like mastering by Billy Stull (Okkervil River, Daniel Johnston), mixing by Jeff Hoskins (Foot Patrol, Cactus Cafe), and pedal-steel playing by Gary Newcomb (Bruce Robison, Li'l Cap'n Travis). The individual appeal of Rocket extends to it's hand-crafted packaging, created by the artist Adam Young and printer Jaime Cervantes; the mood reflects DNN's mix of darkness and innocence, like a tale by the Brothers Grimm. Rocket's tracks excel in pop shapeshifting: the riffed, sprawling 'Electrolux,' the masochistic, Latin-flavored 'Tango,' the love as flash-burning resource, 'Gasoline,' the dirty-talk thrash of 'Take It' and the psychedelic, girl-group layers of 'Stars' are just a few of the album's touchstones. Former drummer, Reid Faist, penned the pop-gem cum addict's-lament, 'Sydney.'
