Day (One)

by The Doves

Enjoy a buffet of stylings from The Doves (husband and wife duo W. Wade and Trena Stooksberry). From the guitar-driven retro-New Wave of “Day”; to “Angeline” (‘Grunge meets Latin in Motown’); to the pulsating angst of “Some More Than Others”; the more elegant acousticism of “Dirty Words” and “Out of the Wood”; and the straight blues of “Everybody’s Happy But Me”.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Day (One)” represents a sliver of the extensive catalogue of material complied by The Doves, who trace their roots back to the nascent Alternative scene of the early-to-mid 80s, and their influences from every corner, to form a sound that is

Lush melodies, mystery and simplicity,
the profane and the sacred, driving
acoustic lyricism. The alternative
to the alternative.

“Day” begins this set with a reflection on unsatisfied idleness, written from the perspective of burgeoning youth, and the expectation of a world opening up to limitless possibility – one of which is that those possibilities are illusory; freedom is nothing more than self indulgence; and there is no meaning beyond the accidental collisions of matter. A possibility which, if entertained, threatens to overcome all others.

“The day’s begun… the day is on… the day is done.”
“The clock unwinds… the clock unwinding… the clock unwound.”

Birth. Life. Death. Is the truth merely “where you find it?”

“Angeline” is a bouncy, Latin-flavored rumination on emotional distance.

“Angeline someday may find
Someone else to read her mind.
Someone else who’ll be a real cool jerk,
The way that I was… if she wants to.”

You can’t be touched, if you make yourself untouchable. What a thing to do.

In “Some More Than Others”, The Doves join forces with the legendary Joey Stuckey in a song that addresses loneliness, suffering, and the universal need for love within the spiritual void of the post-modern landscape.

“Dirty Words” and “Out of the Wood” are stripped-down acoustic versions of songs that respectively address relativism and its outcomes, in ballad form (“ ‘always’ and ‘never’ are such dirty words…”); and fuse the Childe Ballad “House Carpenter” with Dante’s “Inferno”, to a driving folk rhythm.

Trena takes a solo vocal turn to wrap up the collection, in the straight blues “Everybody’s Happy But Me”, which features a return of the rhythm section of Joey Stuckey on bass, and Miguel Castro on drums, who are likewise featured on “Day” and “Angeline”.
