Duff Egan an interesting juxtaposition to the first volume of unsettling but hypnotizing loops. remarkably calm and warm but retaining the sense of mystery. Favorite track: Lagoon.

about

The second hour of the Sun-Day set is actually the first recording session undertaken for the project, sometime in late 2004 or early 2005. In hindsight, it's pretty remarkable to hear now, knowing how different everything else I was writing and releasing back then sounded. It's hard for me to imagine this music inhabiting the same physical space, and being created with the same equipment, as something like Slow Lid Close. Yet, it exists, and all these years later I still think it works. Also, a small note - Sun-Day 1 was issued on my birthday, and Sun-Day 2 is now issued on my father's birthday.

Musically, it slithers around in ghostly movements that aren't really that musical at all. Elemental sounds give way to actual tonalities, then fizzle out again in a wash of reverb and subterranean noise. I distinctly remember these sessions being vividly inspired by a large lagoon next to a plant my father worked at in the 1980's. Massive, organic, dark, hinting at movements below the surface, and yet also somehow industrial and whirring with unseen machine energies.
