A Sunny Day in Glasgow return to Connecticut. Beside this Lilly's Pad show, you can catch them up at UConn on October 29. The band is giving away Autumn, Again, their latest full length on their website as a free download. This new LP continues where the Nitetime Rainbows EP left off, basically bringing more Ashes Grammar to light. They are also pressing 500 vinyl copies of Autumn, Again, which you can grab from Carrot Top Distribution.

A Sunny Day in Glasgow began as a collaboration between friends Ben Daniels and Ever Nalens, both of whom had recently returned to Philadelphia after several years in the UK. The band name came from Nalens, who had been living in Glasgow, and Daniels kept it after Nalens left the project. In 2006, Daniels asked his twin sisters, Robin and Lauren, to start singing on the songs they had been working on. In March of that year the trio self-released The Sunniest Day Ever EP to great acclaim from college radio stations and blogs. Their debut release, Scribble Mural Comic Journal, came out February 2007 and received favorable reviews from Pitchfork and Drowned in Sound among others. Scribble Mural Comic Journal was recorded with one microphone in a bedroom in West Philly and pushed the boundaries of dream pop often drawing comparisons to My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins.

Candy Claws' debut album “In The Dream Of The Sea Life” struck the hearts and ears of internet music dorks, and they have been riding a residual wave of praise since. Their sound and aesthetic is familiar and unique; they smoosh Pet Sounds harmonies through Animal Collective gurgle and approach the aftermath with naivety and wonder. Their music is both classic and totally modern.

Superhumanoids formed in a bedroom (in LA) - an electronic experiment to escape the everyday of the everyday. Dreams of a more public lifestyle have taken this reverie to an unconventional conclusion - a troupe that incorporates equal parts harmony and dissonance, programing and organic instrumentation, lush harmonies and sparse arrangements. an exploration of pop through a spaced-out, kaleidoscopic lens.

Procedure Club is a collaborative "bedroom-pop" project founded by Andrea and Polish emigré Adam Malec in New Haven, Connecticut in 2008. The two began recording as a natural progression from their boredom with living in poverty in New Haven, sharing musical tastes in shoegaze and pop bands of the 80s and 90s, such as Black Tambourine, and The Jesus and Mary Chain, as well as a common admiration for Baroque artists such as Purcell and Bach. Out of this god-forsaken alliance comes Procedure Club, in which Adam and Andrea have combined melodic song structures with heavily reverbed vocals, stuttering mechanical drum beats, dirty bass, synths, and alternately washed-out and jangly guitars.
