Ashes Grammar


After a series of accidents and lineup changes right when A Sunny Day in Glasgow’s second album sessions were due, little surprise if there was some trepidation about the potential results. Nothing to worry about, it turned out: 2009’s Ashes Grammar was a fine example of 21st century indie rock with an obsessively-created-in-studio focus, with everything from dreamy interstitial moments between songs to how the shoegaze-inspired flow of songs like “Close Chorus,” “Canalfish” and “Ashes Maths” add engaging, unusual vocal and instrumental touches.
