Sun Opus Is Upon Us
Matthew Sigley (of Drop City, The Earthmen etc.) is now kicking around with his mates as The Daytime Frequency and by golly he's hitting the nail smack-dab on the head here. Wispy Brit-influenced psych-rock morphs without a second thought into a tastefully jaunty section with 808 claps and dirty synth slink. Moments of harmony blister and phase into sparkling electronic arpeggios. Trebly piano chords locate a smudged vocoder amongst a drum pattern that joyously trips over itself. Flutes flirt freely before the French starts. Ooh, alliteration and palindromes go hand in hand. Token carousel waltz. Lost your inner child? Here's your sunlight. The rest's up to you. Adrian Trajstman Mess and Noise March 2006.
