Don Potter SingsWho the heck is Dan Potter and calls his music outfit Dan Potter Sings? For starters, he’s from the beautiful city of Vancouver, British Columbia. Second, he’s a one-man band. Why he added “Sings” to his moniker is unknown, but it likely is part of his laid-back, easy-going approach to music. Third, Dan Potter is set to release his third album – all self-produced – of catchy, fun, and roaring alternative rock. Last year, he released Barbarians and in 2013 his self-titled debut was launched. His forthcoming album, Panic Attack, promises more of the same delirious alt-rock.

The first single from the new album is the title track, “Panic Attack”. The song and Potter’s vocals are similar to Vermont indie-rocker King Tuff. There are even hints of Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees in the track, which could be an indication of a more psychedelic feel to album number three. Regardless of the direction, we can be assured that Potter will create more blistering rock. With such an infectious, fun sound, more people should know who Dan Potter is, and maybe Panic Attack will be his breakthrough.

No specific date has been set for the release of the new album, but Potter expects it will be available later this summer. In the meantime, check out his Bandcamp page to hear singles from his first two records and buy them! For another taste of Potter’s music, below is “Masking Tape”, which is Mikal Cronin-esque.

“Panic Attack” is on the June 12th edition of The Weekend Showcase, a weekly playlist featuring new music from around the world. This week, we have 23 new singles that form arguably our best Showcase to date.
