Heavy rains and the first night of Passover may have deterred some of the Monday night crowd at the Bell House, but those who came out witnessed the critically-acclaimed Philadelphia based dreampop sextet A Sunny Day in Glasgow deliver a stellar set of songs in support of their latest EP, Nitetime Rainbows. While their records, and especially Nitetime Rainbows, have a bit more of an electronic sheen to them, ASDIG’s live show is a more organic experience, free from some of the editing room trickery.  Experiencing them as a bit more of a “rock” band (albeit, a still-very-shoegazy one) is a different but completely enjoyable experience from how they are on record.   This includes more of a focus on the vocal harmonies of singers Annie Fredrickson and Jen Goma, which were especially beautiful on the impromptu performance of “Another Diamond Day” by Vashti Bunyan.

I recorded this set with a combination of the DPA 4021 microphones and a stereo soundboard feed, which for this particular show consisted of mostly vocals.  Therefore, what you are hearing is predominantly the mics, with the vocals boosted a bit from the board feed.  The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
