Dick Diver - Calendar Days (Green Vinyl)
The sophomore album from Melbourne quartet Dick Diver, “Calendar Days” features saxophones, keyboards, pedal steel and piano throughout. A much more collaborate effort than its predecessor, this album includes songwriting contributions from each member couple with shared vocals all over.
Calendar Days is the sound of a band growing up and opening up. There's a beguiling, inquisitive eccentricity that runs throughout and combined with a non-flag-wearing but still classic Auzzie-ness it makes for something of a modern classic.
