A Sunny Day In Glasgow have finally released their latest LP, Sea When Absent, out now on Lefse Records. As a surprise for fans in the UK, the NO DEATH EP is being made available at select UK independent record stores. This limited edition hand stamped CD features two exclusive non-LP tracks and three remixes and is available to anyone who purchases Sea When Absent at participating stores (Norman, Rough Trade, Piccadilly, Rise, Recordstore). Listen to the Ice Choir remix of “Bye Bye, Big Ocean (The End)” right here. Ice Choir is the most recent project of Kurt Feldman (formerly of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Depreciation Guild). The band has been on the road for a few weeks now and will be wrapping up their national tour with two homecoming shows this weekend in Brooklyn (7/26) and Philadelphia (7/27). Check below for track listing and the remaining tour dates!
Sea When Absent situates itself in the science fiction that is life in 2014 and goes looking for what new myths might speak to us in our post-Fukushima, post-quantum, post-everything world. Recorded over a year and half with Jeff Zeigler (War on Drugs, Kurt Vile) at his Uniform Recording Studios in Eraserhood Philadelphia, the album is a conscious move away from the bright-dark, ambient maximalism of the band’s acclaimed double LP, Ashes Grammar, and a move towards a post-millennial, up-front pop sound.
