opening with a ten second homage to estonian composer arvo part, its immediately apparent that a sunny day in glasgows new album, 'ashes grammar', is going to be a much more visceral outing than their 2007 album debut, 'scribble mural comic journal'. it takes a few minutes for the record to even begin to reveal itself, as a swarm of 1950s acapella ('secrets at the prom') gives way to resonant drones, room noise, and sub bass ('slaughter killing carnage'). it's here that failure unexpectedly kicks in with a tribal stomp and a fluttering guitar acting as a pair of wings, lifting the circular chants of the songs melody off the ground. in many ways this is a different group than the one we first heard back in 2007, but with ben continuing his role as the principal songwriter, theres no doubt this 'ashes grammar' could be from any other band than a sunny day in glasgow. and once again, dream pop has been re-imagined.
