Static Daydream’s self-titled debut LP is a noisy sonic assault

You should probably know going in that unless you are a fan of distortion and reverb — and I’m talking LOTS of distortion and reverb — you might enjoy the self-titled debut album from noise pop duo Static Daydream. Comprised of Paul Baker (Skywave, Ceremony) and girlfriend Jamie Casey, Static Daydream have unleashed an exhausting sonic assault.

Static Daydream CDIt’s a record that I find myself appreciating a little more with every listen as Baker and Casey impress throughout. Baker handles the bulk of the vocal duties on the record, though Casey acquits herself nicely on keepers “More Than Today” and “Run Into the Night.”

Among the highlights of the 11-track, 48-minute slab are “Blue Tambourine Girl,” personal favorite “Just Stay,” “Another Rainy Night Without You,” “When I Turn Around You’re Gone” and “I’ve Destroyed Everything.” These songs aren’t pretty, but they sure are powerful. (Jeffrey Sisk)
