Composed in 2018, guitars added in early 2022 by Larry Jay Davis; Kynwyn Stewart added her drums later that year. Mixed down by Justin Higgins at Emerald Lodge Studio in Eugene. Whew!
Primarily inspired by Virginia Nicholson’s study of those who rebelled against Victorian lifestyles, Among the Bohemians: Experiments in Living, much of the imagery derives from the semi-infamous characters depicted by Ms. Nicholson. Check out an interview with this author here on BBC radio 4.
Many thanks to Larry (acoustic guitar on tracks 1, 2 &5) and Joyce (vocals on tracks 1, 2, 5, 6 & 7) for some extra special additions; almost the Dayglo Anglos! Also many thanks to Steve Glaze of Tone Freq Studio who mastered all the tracks.
Haunted by Ghosts
This album started long ago when Joyce was listening to Postal Service and Dido.
Songs of Leaving
In the second incarnation of the Dayglo Anglos, Joyce Graves sang lead vocals. Larry Jay Davis played guitars and David Graves is playing … well, all sorts of stuff. Many thanks to Derek Bianchi (and MuscleTone Studio) for helping with microphone auditions, and Jerry Mueller, who recorded the final cut live at City College of San Francisco. Also the ever-present Steve Glaze mastering the final mix.
The Wild Iris
… has cool textures and sparse vocals. ScienceNV played Aftermath live in 2006 and 2007 and then recorded it on their first album. Check it out here.
