- Ashes Grammar by A Sunny Day In Glasgow

I recall Phil going on & on at me while I was on my extended sanity leave about this band called A Sunny Day in Glasgow. What a shite name I thought, it always rains in Glasgow doesn't it? Then, by chance, we drove through Glasgow on a sunny day on the way to Oban & my friend Rick stopped the car and we assisted him to shin up a lamppost to tear down a BNP placard some numbskull racist types had tiegripped to it (UK elections 3 years ago - hohoho) but overall, the place seemed pretty buzzing and I've met some right characters over the years from there. A Sunny Day in Glasgow, the band, are actually from Philly, USA, based around members of the Daniel's family, and make the FINEST psychedelic shoegazey dreampop you could wish for, surfing the various tidal waves of post MBV noise pop & blissed out electronic rock. On 'Ashes Grammar' some passages share affiliations with the kind of euphoric future noise that Animal Collective throw around, as well as some dancier, rhythmic leanings ala Seefeel, Flowchart et al and their subsequent viral like contemporaries such as Outhud! Throughout, there's frisky percussion, spangled guitar shapes, fervent bass thrumming, rapturous hazy vocals, eerie hypnagogic sound blurring, delirious choral pop and some of the freshest, most ecstatic sounds to explode from the universally adored dreampop canon in years, keeping it remarkably progressive & ecstatic but retaining a homely edge. This is the sound of stargaze, there's no scowling at scuffed desert boots through greasy fringes for these guys. I'm kind of reminded on a couple of tracks of when The Field Mice turned their hands to dancier material and early Saint Etienne, but with the best in today's technology being gracefully harnessed. A fabulous ride indeed! CD mainly, but we have got a tiny handful of coloured vinyl, strictly on a 1st come, 1st served basis!
