Daylight's for the Birds: Trouble Everywhere (This Generation Tapes)
released: October 31, 2006

styles: Dream pop, indie rock
similar: Pale Saints, Mahogany, the Brother Kite, Saloon, Russian Futurists, Mira
rating: **1/2

Ex-members of NYC band On!Air!Library! move into the airspace with dreamy dreamy noise and feathery vocals not like hazy Slowdive style but more like gentle Pale Saints or Mahogany. The album opens wonderfully, then loses momentum with too many unsatisfying slower-tempo songs that get lost in a thick fog of pretty voices and guitar effects. -Kenyon
