Dazy

In August of 2020, James Goodson, a music publicist based in Richmond, started posting songs on Bandcamp under the name Dazy. Goodson played all the instruments on that song, recording them with a sloppy lo-fi urgency, but the songs sounded huge. Dazy’s music is sticky, fuzzy, overwhelmingly catchy power-pop, and it’s got hooks for days. Goodson didn’t make a huge deal about pushing those songs out to the world, but the songs were too good to stay hidden on Bandcamp.

Almost exactly one year ago, a band called Dazy started cranking out ridiculously catchy lo-fi fuzz-pop bangers and posting them on Bandcamp. It turned out that Dazy wasn’t really a band at all. It’s one guy, the Richmond-based music publicist James Goodson, recording his own stuff at home and then putting it out on his own. His songs are bleary and catchy and supremely confident, and the whole project seemed too good to be one guy’s DIY Bandcamp thing. (I email with Goodson all the time, but he hasn’t been pushing his Dazy stuff at all. I had to find it on my own.)

James Goodson is a music publicist in Richmond, Virginia, and he’s also a member of the bands Teen Death and Bashful. Since last year, Goodson has been doing a one-man home-recorded power-pop project called Dazy, and it’s awesome. Dazy started out releasing two-song singles back in August, and in the past eight months, the band has already amassed a truly slick little discography. The songs are sharp and hooky and tough. They’ve got a murky lo-fi quality that makes them, at the very least, punk-adjacent, and they’ve also got a towering garage-rock swagger. And the songs are just good.
