Everything after that starts a new era for the band. The only thing that could make it better would be the quality of recording. Again, a great melody and a great vibe. It has the quality to transport you out of the mundane, angry world into a sunset filled dream where everything is melancholy perfection. So we did it for you! I found myself wondering what our return would sound like and started thinking about an abandoned concept I had years ago. Q: So, is the album still going to be called Creation if Creation is the title, please elaborate on the concept and is there a label already attached to its release? I am a freelance Graphic Designer for a living, so I am interested in anything that is well designed.
He has this amazing chorus effect that he sometimes puts on the guitar that we mixed up himself. That was the sound I wanted. Money and record label support is another issue. Like all of our music though, that is just what it means to me. I wanted to work with a cover first before the serious process of writing and recording new material with equipment I was sort of unfamiliar with.
Thought this band was perfect already, far and away my favorite sounding band from the present day artists with a dreamy sound. I did lend guest vocals to a track on the new album too. It is a ghostly, ephemeral daydream. Be happy and be nice to people! It should be pretty and it should get stuck in your head. Soviet really brought something else out in The Daysleepers sound. When you hear it all together it will definitely be a beautiful, noisy experience. Can you talk a bit about the writing and recording of that particular track and why it became the one you released first? We can get those huge arena sounding drums effortlessly and they sound so powerful.
Q: Thanks so much for answer my questions. It is one of the best tracks we have ever created but it was definitely not easy. Something about the mix is less muddy than on the full length version. Completely refreshing to see someone being so open about their influences, their feelings, embracing their genre instead of running from everything, and just being totally forthright. I can't imagine a better guitar sound. Jeff Kandefer was kind enough to answer my questions about the 2008 release, the coming of Creation, the making of their new singles and much more. All the guitars on this album are Jazzmasters.
I love , I think they are great. Slow moving percussion riding deep booming bass frequencies skirts undulating layers of haunting synth as those impressive vocals arrive, lifting the track just enough to make room for those massive pools of reverb. Which are they and why? Drift you will in a gauzy dream. After a while I started to feel crazy from how intensely I was listening to the track. This is new for this album. We have all been busy trying to earn a living, getting married and so on. The songs reflect this too.
I had this interesting concept and some songs started but the circumstances were not right. I got one soon after and fell in love with them! Just a perfect remix to an already great song. Jeff's voice is full-on dreamy and is really a major part of their sound. That is the formula of sound. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. I actually like this version better than the version.
Q: I sort of want to go back and talk a bit about Drowned in the Sea of Sound. It has a distorted, unrefined 4 track quality to it that I like, but some may be turned off by. I was asked by someone yesterday, who is also a huge Daysleepers fan, who I thought had a similar sound. How was the band formed? That's not to say that shoegaze is the only kind of music we listen to. Huge in scope, is absolutely mesmerising and a definite album highlight for me. In the shoegaze genre you hear a lot of male singers with more droning, goth type voices and females with sweet, heavenly voices.
I recut the vocals after not being happy with the first pass. We may do a standard edition repress at some point. Our bass player Scott wrote and programmed the main composition for that song. I miss hearing Elizabeth's voice. Thanks, let me know if you do end up with any extras floating around or the repress ends up happening and I'd be happy to take one off your hands! It marks such a great time in my life and all the feelings that are associated with that time come flooding back when I listen to it. I definitely think we accomplished it, but it almost drove me insane.
We would always practice late at night, and I wrote most if not all the lyrics to our catalog late at night. . It is just hard to say when it will be available. We obviously listen to a lot of , , and. She is a fantastic vocalist and makes the song something else entirely. He is also a contributing writer for Now On Hiatus.
It's really not that exciting or unusual, but we had all been friends for a while before we started the band. It opens with a synth- like wash of dreamy guitar and a pulsating dub like beat. It is neat to hear these songs in the gestation phase. I was amazed the first time I heard it, well. I'm glad we didn't have to wait until a box set or anthology to get this stuff. We may do a standard edition repress at some point. It is my total focus for the band at the moment, as well as the vinyl reissues of the older material.
