about

So here we are, Sun-Day 23, celebrating the eve of the end. What better way to preface the final act than with a return to roots? Nine ambient blues pieces, all near-improvisations on electric guitar, that echo the only instrument-sourced track on Sun-Day 1 (Retroazimuth). These nine passages of deep country sadness are similar in tone and playing style of records like Eight Thousander, Nine Billion Names, Blue Wheatfield and the oft-named but not yet released Summer's Parting Ways. Indeed, Sun-Day 23 was mostly recorded during the same timespan as Nine Billion Names, which may be more evident to longtime listeners. In the interest of context, I'll also disclose a small truth: Each of these tracks relate in some way to a member of my family, and were conceived as a kind of musical family tree to be placed carefully into the Sun-Day oeuvre. More than that, no one else would possibly know except myself, and that discrete feeling of something personal being written down and stashed away, a secret kept for the rest of your life, is very present to me within the bent lead melodies and downtuned chords of Sun-Day 23. Now, onward - to the end!

"Well, you and I collapsed in love. And it looks like we might've made it. Yes, it looks like we've made it to the end."
-D. Albarn, 1994
