Album Review

If listening to Scribble Mural Comic Journal could be likened to watching a horror flick made in the 1950s, Ben Daniels would be a skinny teenage genius in a baggy lab coat, his twin sisters Lauren and Robin would be his eerie assistants clad in go-go boots, and the album itself would be his robot bride. In other words, A Sunny Day in Glasgow's debut is ambitious to the point of becoming monstrous; it strides right past the pop-oriented shoegaze material of the preceding EP and dives right into the sometimes miry tangle of Ben's auditory imagination. Lauren and Robin's tightly wound vocals are gorgeously incomprehensible, the guitars are acidic and knotted, the drums sound like they were recorded at the bottom of an abandoned mineshaft, and the whole thing comes off like a hot, blurry night at the bar. It's the kind of album that demands headphones. The most memorable moments on Scribble Mural are those that skillfully toe the line between shoegazey pop and avant-garde noise. "A Mundane Call to Jack Parsons" is spot-on with its Byrds-esque harpsichords and urgent drums, not to mention the fact that Lauren and Robin's vocals are given room to emerge through all that noise. "C'mon" opens with structured, springy guitars, only to lavishly implode into a mass of distortion and wails. "Our Change into Rain Is No Change at All" does the reverse, building ethereal pop out of seemingly chaotic guitars, tambourines, and synths. Scribble Mural takes Sunny Day's debut EP and splatters it, Jackson Pollock-style, against a wall. But for all the contortion and deconstruction going on here, Scribble Mural maintains the slightly disturbing and oddly uplifting vibe that made Sunny Day's teaser EP memorable.

Customer Reviews

Wow

I got the mp3 of Watery off ASDIG's site and started listening to it walking home from my friend’s house one day. It wasn't until the song ended that I realized I had become completely entranced in it. It was like getting woken out of a daydream that has totally taken over your consciousness. Only about three other songs have ever done that to me, and I have listened to ALOT of songs. ASDIG manage to be the new shoegazers while still being something absolutely different. Buy this album, grab a pair of decent headphones, and get taken away by them as I have.

Out of nowhere.

3 siblings make psychedlic music that incorporates electronics, shoegazer drones, heavy reverb on vocals, and beautifully crafted guitar tones. definitely one of the strongest releases, so far this year. instantly appealing!

Brilliant

This is dream pop at its finest. Arguably the best debut of 2007 thus far.

Biography

A Sunny Day in Glasgow emerged in the mid-2000s with synth-laden experimental noise-pop that echoed shoegaze acts like My Bloody Valentine, but gave the sound their own interpretation. The band formed when Philadelphia native Ben Daniels returned from a few years in the U.K. and began recording songs with vocal help from his sisters Lauren and Robin. They put some of the tracks together and released them as an EP called The Sunniest Day Ever in March 2006. The EP charted at number one on New York's...
