However, How the Day Sounds is hardly a rough-cut basement recording. Songs such as “High and Low” and “What a Day” are lush and melodic featuring polished piano playing and delicate strings. The track “Days Go On” is reminiscent of Radiohead, but retains a unique quality with a chorus floating over rhythmic piano keystrokes.
While it seems Laswell is often playing it on the safe side, the result is still modern and sincere.
