Black Hole is the debut studio album from The Spookfish. Dan Goldberg began performing as under the moniker in 2007 when he moved to Brooklyn, NY from his home in Central New Jersey. Over the next several years Dan trekked around the globe living, recording and writing songs in far off places like Busan, South Korea, China, Berlin, Russia and Portland, OR. The project was an attempt to document dreams, subconscious melodies, and moments of strong intuition through sound as a personal journal.
Upon arriving back in NYC in 2013 Dan began hosting shows in the Hudson Valley of New York State that involve a group of people hiking a mountain together and stopping at different landmarks (the peak, streams, the ruins of an old estate, etc.) to watch musicians perform. He has led 30 of these hikes between then and now eventually catching the eye of The New York Times. In January of 2017 Fire Talk re-issued a vast collection of material from Dan's journeys while embarking on his new endeavor Black Hole. Think John Fahey meets Black Moth Super Rainbow meets The Microphones.
