Gunship already had an amazing debut in 2015, so that was going to be difficult to top. But I'm happy to say they did it easily! The songs on Dark All Day are a little darker than on their debut, but are more concise, more consistent, and more elaborate. Sometimes, they tread a bit on the industrial side, which gives this record a very interesting edge! The 80's nostalgia still flows copiously on a few tracks, most notably the stellar single "When You Grow Up, Your Heart Dies", and a nice cover of Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time". This album has solidified Gunship for me as a band I will most definitely keep following closely. They have a very bright future ahead!
And let me say, the quality of this vinyl pressing blew me away! I was not prepared for this level of excellence. For this release, you get two heavyweight 180g records that are pressed at 45rpm (the Amazon product listing is wrong). The mastering done here is simply outstanding. Very quiet with absolutely no surface noise, absolutely pristine dynamics and very clear sound overall. Deep bass and crisp highs...perfect for the nuances of this genre of music! This is reference quality stuff!
