Calendar Days -LP w/ Download Card

Catalogue No.: CH105LP
Record Label: Fuse Distribution

Much-loved Melbourne guitar slingers Dick Diver return with their second album, Calendar Days, the follow-up to the hugely successful 2011 debut, New Start Again .

Previously known for their scratchy, dueling guitars and laconic delivery, Dick Diver throw a few curveballs on Calendar Days. The first sound you hear on the record is the tick of a drum machine, and there are keyboards, saxophones, pedal steel and piano throughout; It’s also a much more collaborative affair than its predecessor.

The first album was primarily written by guitarists Ru Edwards and Al McKay, with a contribution each from bassist Al Montfort (Total Control, UV Race, Lower Plenty) and drummer Stephanie Hughes (Boomgates). But the vibe on Calendar Days is engagingly communal. The two Als trade verses on punchy first single 'Alice', while Steph sings most of the Ru-penned title track and shares vocal duties on expansive second single 'Water Damage'. Al Mc and Ru square off on 'Lime Green Shirt', while Al Mc and Steph share a resigned duet on one-take ballad 'Two Year Lease'. Calendar Days is the sound of a band growing up, and opening up.

Dick Diver’s New Start Again was one of the most popular and highly-praised Australian independent releases of 2011, both here and abroad. Calendar Days will follow a similar path, if not to greater heights. Along with the likes of the Twerps, Blank Realm, Total Control, Lower Plenty and Boomgates, they’re spearheading a vast network of Australian bands making ripples and waves both here and around the globe.
