A Sunny Day In Glasgow
WebsiteA Sunny Day In Glasgow
Congratulating a young artist for discovering “shoegaze” or “ambient” sounds these days would be like praising a kid for discovering farts, which makes it all the more pleasing when a new band actually uses the reverb dial to expand its possibilities instead of just clumsily diving into pretty static. A Sunny Day In Glasgow does feature charming female vocals bounding through echo-blasted pop melody on 2009’s Ashes Grammar, but the production takes at least a hint from the fractured pulses of Aphex Twin, leaving plenty of open space and mystery between the mounds of sugar. ASDIG gets a lot of mileage out of that subtle touch, raking together two quality standbys from the Ashes Grammar sessions—March’s Nitetime RainbowsEP and the new Autumn, Again, available as a free download for the remainder of the titular season.
