The backing rhythms remind me of listening to early Kompakt out of a hand radio while being completely occupied with blowing a 100 dandelion tails out a car window with the members of the Cocteau Twins. After hearing this album by A Sunny Day in Glasgow I might have to say they maybe the torchbearers of softy dream pop in 2009 and I have no problems with that. After hearing a few songs I was thinking this could be what Stereolab would sound like if it was reborn and cared for by Slowdive and a giant gentle shoegaze educated moth that flew the band members around and cultured them with magical sound like Falcor from Neverending Story? Could I name drop anymore band names in this post? no one will ever know unless a band member from A Sunny Day in Glasgow approves this post.
Please note: that the photo of the Dandelion Tails is by John Corney, perfect name for the perfect picture.
