On the new LP Someday Is Today Winnipeg band Living Hour maximize their sound on the “dreamy” side of things and go full into shoegaze mode with certain slowcore and ethereal elements. If you listen to it a couple of times back to back it really puts you in a light trance-like state and creates a very pleasant mood for the rest of the day (or even week).
To highlight or select singles from such a record is to do a disservice to it as this is one of those releases that is best listened to in its entirety and without breaks. All the tracks fit, complement each other, and create a strong perception of meaning to the work as a whole. A fantastic soundtrack for upcoming colder months as well.
The album was created by the band with the help of such producers and collaborators as Melina Duterte (also known as Jay Som, who appears on one of the songs), Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, Snail Mail), and Samur Khouja (Cate le Bon, Deerhunter).
