(New Album Review) Spin Day- Spin Day and the Emotional Godfather

I enjoyed this next submission: Spin Day and the Emotional Godfather, the promising debut of the German musician who goes by the moniker of Spin Day. This release will interest fans of World’s End Girlfriend and Haruka Nakamura– it has that distinctive flavor of theirs that is hard to pin down. These short pieces (which could just as easily be called “ambient” as “post-rock”) sound nervous, breezy, and somber all at once. It sounds like Spin Day made this record with a digital piano, guitar, and softsynths. Not bad.

Though some aspects of the production for this album are a little awkward and could use some smoothing-over, I think that the level of composition skill displayed here is solid. I’m looking forward to Spin Day’s future output.
