Eleven albums later, and five years since the last, the Chicago-based synthy (now a) trio steps away from heavy production on Any Day to explore life without founding bassist Eric Claridge, while retaining the buoyant, skip-along heart lifters that can be labeled without malice as easy listening indie tunes.
