As requested, Here's the first of several Dark Day albums I'll be posting in the coming days. Dark Day was no wave keyboardist Robin Crutchfield's post DNA outfit, though the only thing they carried on from those days was a propensity for the tense and stark, and even those tendencies went south by the time they recorded the incredible Window. Certainly the rarest and most desirable Dark Day release, it's also (unlike Crutchfield's more rockist other Dark Day releases) a pure minimal synth musical mainline and has attracted collector prices to match. The first Martin Rev solo album seems an obvious point of comparison here in it's aggressive and wet timbres. Combine that with a candy coated melodicism that smacks a bit of instrumental early Human League stuff like The Dignity Of Labour and you've got a pretty solid recipe for a direct link into your minimal synth pleasure receptors.

Note: Link removed as this has now been reissued by Dark Entries records and can be found Here
