Different Days is a stormy and fierce animal in comparison to previous records, bringing the heady waves that always lurked beneath L'altra's calm exterior crashing to the surface. Listen to "It Follows Me Around," the way Costa's guitar laps Eben English's tight kit, while Joe and Lindsay's harmonies ride the skipping cello; or to the feedback and the dub echoes that make gray fuzzies around the lonesome guitar on "Bring on Happiness." They, like many of the album's songs, redefine L'altra's idea of space as something both greater than you can ever imagine, and more intimate than you can stand.

And at its heart, Different Days is a conversation between two people trying to make sense of this space: "On almost every song, when I sing a part," says Joe, "she sings back at me. We may no longer necessarily be the people we are in our songs, but music is a way that Lindsay and I have come to communicate. Now we get to pretend." Looks like Lindsay and Joe have become the "other" after which they named the band.
