Song of the Day - November 22, 2006

The second album from Sheffield native Duncan Sumpner is entitled Aeriel Days. The disc is a melancholy journey in the psych-folk tradition. Songs meander through Duncan's mind as the echoes of guitars bounce off the aural landscape. The album invokes a dark, damp, dreary day. That is not a complaint, but praise. The cover of "Dear Prudence" is beautiful and heartfelt. Yet, the standout track is "Remembering and Forgetting;" a song that transitions from some simple arpeggios on the guitar, to a much more dissonant collection of sounds involving dulcimer, reverb drenched vocals, and a disturbing crescendo of sonic chaos.
