Boomkat product review for:

a sunny day in glasgow - Ashes Grammar

Launching into a peculiar opening minute or so, this sophomore long-player by Philadelphian rockers A Sunny Day In Glasgow begins with what's billed as a ten-second homage to Arvo Part: the echo-laden chorals of 'Magna For Annie, Josh & Robin' segue into the more poppy acappella of 'Secrets At The Prom', before eventually arriving at 'Slaughter Killing Carnage (The Meaning Of Words)', at which point the band kick into their first fully formed song. From here on in, blurry dream-pop aesthetics merge into smudged samples and electronically polished guitar, resulting in the strobing euphoria of 'Failure', and the hiccuping 'Passionate Introverts (Dinosaurs)', which sounds pleasingly like peaktime Saint Etienne overhauled by Animal Collective. Although the tracklist suggests a half-formed bittiness - many of the tracks clock in at under two minutes - the songs all tend to flow into one another in a gloriously gauzy continuous stream. Though by no means unrelated to recent C86 revivalist fads, A Sunny Day In Glasgow actually manage to refurbish those time-tested sounds with a dollop of modernity and contemporary technology. Consequently they're one of the relatively few bands operating within the resuscitated dream-gaze/shoe-pop genre that stand out. Recommended.
