about

Ten new instrumental compositions of left-field experimentation that are rhythmical and melodic, often dramatic and rich in layered textures. The sound of reverb heavy guitars and effected synths constructs a record taking influence from a multitude of sources, genres and decades. For this collection more attention has been paid to the electronica and processed synths that surrounds the principle instrument of the guitar giving a dynamic and spacious quality that fluctuates vastly between calmly meditative, blissful elation to stark and haunting.

The influence and heritage of this recording respectfully comes from acts such as Tortoise, Papa M and Do Make Say Think. Downes attempts a variety of styles and moods throughout Dog Day Morning that use folk, minimalism, pop instrumentals and ambient experimentalism. From the up beat lush synth classicism of the opening track Mabel, to the driving and complex multi guitar arrangement of Sonny, to the field recordings and soundscape bleakness of Martha, the collection exhibits a broad range of tone and feeling. It’s this eclectic attitude to music making that gives Dog Day Morning a compellingly investigative sensation seeming to wander a broad range of references, instruments and sounds.
