Multi-instrumentalist and composer Michael Allison delivers eleven tracks filled with beauty and wonder on A Day Like Any Other, the eleventh Darshan Ambient release on the Spotted Peccary label. Celebrating the many moments that make an ordinary life special, A Day Like Any Other is a delightful and positive work, overflowing with hopeful energy and infused with the distinctive Darshan Ambient style.

Elegant and upbeat, A Day Like Any Other is generous with rhythm and up-front percussion, providing a positive mood and easy-going feel that keeps the music moving forward throughout the album’s eleven track journey. The music percolates with life as carefree melodies weave their way through rhythmic synth patterns, pulsing strings, electric guitar, piano, and ambient textures. The charming and authentic Darshan Ambient style is clearly recognizable in the adept use of multi-layered percussion, synth atmospheres, bass, and guitar grooves, and like previous Darshan Ambient works, A Day Like Any Other is focused and accessible, with an emphasis on melody and structure that results in an effortless and deeply enjoyable listening experience. 

With its delightful atmospheres and pleasant orchestrations A Day Like Any Other paints a marvelous musical picture, and from the glorious easy groove of the album’s opener “City Of The Seven Hymns”, through the triumphant final notes of the closing track “The Republic Of Dreams”, the albums musical journey washes over the listener, soothing the mind and lifting spirits to a realm of brighter dreams and better days.
