Song of the Day: Bloomsday - Tuesday to Thursday

By in News | 3 Comments

Bloomsday’s debut “The Day the Colors Died” was brilliant, if a little disjointed. The trio ambitiously covered indie rock, shoegaze, jangle pop, slow-core, lo-fi, and emo all in the span of 10 songs. Amazingly, 20+ years later it still holds up. But it was their second release, this time an EP, that really caught listener’s ears and held them in a death grip. It was much more focused this time around–emotionally charged indie rock that somehow managed to merge emo and shoegaze into a singular, cohesive unit that was both of those things and yet neither of them entirely. Listen to the feedback and gut-wrenching vocals on standout cut “Tuesday to Thursday.” I had no idea was lead crooner Blake Westcott is singing about, but darn it if I don’t feel every note!

Great song of the day choice! I would have loved to experience more from Bloomsday, but it never happened. What we’re left with is so great, though! I love lots of music with the vocals pushed back in the mix, but the presence of the vocals in these songs is part of what makes them distinctive in the shoegaze/dreampop genre.

Wow, I’ve never heard of Bloomsday until this post. I can’t believe I’m only hearing their music now. This stuff is great, a total revelation for me.
