Hauntingly and melodically slow epic journeys of musically obscureness' is a fitting to start out summing up this release. Mayday is the baby of Lullaby for the Working Class's frontman Ted Stevens, another Nebraska indie-rock love band. Stevens is backed by other members of Lullaby as well as by members of essentially every other band on Saddle Creek Records. So, in essence, the record becomes the full collaboration and highlights of the Saddle Creek family. Each of the songs on the record are exceptionally long, fitting the description that this review started with and all are themed in some general musical manner. For instance, songs are dictated as "pastoral" or "sensual" or "nautical." To attain these sounds of longing, Mayday utilize basically every type of instrument though without being annoyingly eclectic. Using the powers of modern technology, as well as Satan, if you scroll backwards on the CD from the first song, it reveals hidden numbers of love and prosperous orgy of Maydaian thought. The bottom line here is that if you enjoy material from Lullaby for the Working Class, Son, Ambulance, and Azure Ray, you will probably dig this as well.
