A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Golden Retriever, Tender Age

When: Sun., July 13, 9 p.m. 2014


A Sunny Day in Glasgow started in Philly but are now scattered across two continents. So when it came time to make their third album, Sea When Absent, the band was forced to piece together its fizzy dream-pop; arrangement responsibility shifted, a new lyricist emerged, production was handled by an outsider, and so on. As a result, the new album finds ASDIG sounding more kaleidoscopic and less shoegazey. Led by two beautifully airy female voices, Sea When Absent is playful and elusive, unafraid of sonic and rhythmic shifts. It sounds like perfect dream-pop chopped up into pieces and tossed into a swirling, sugary wind. It's also one of the best records of 2014. If you miss School of Seven Bells, after Ben Curtis' death in December, make a beeline for A Sunny Day in Glasgow. BEN SALMON
