You may notice that there are fewer pictures of the wonderful Amor de Dias
than of some other folks I have aimed a camera at. There is a good reason for this (no, I was not drunk). The band plays such subtle, beautiful and soft music I could hear my shutter going off every time I pressed the button. It sounded as loud as a fuckin' avalanche to me and I just couldn't take all the photos I needed to to get a decent number. I am not ruining a show for other folks.They really play beautiful music though. When your band consists of two classical acoustic guitars and a cello you sort of have to play well as you have only your playing and your voices to rely on.Amor de Dias is
Alasdair MacLean & Lupe Núñez-Fernández. MacLean is from the band The Clientele
and Núñez-Fernández is from Pipas
, both bands worth checking out in their own right. I am having a dreadful time coming up with words to describe this music; it is
Another thing to mention is that I bought the band's just release CD, Street of the Love of Days. I make a habit of not buying CDs at shows because, well, I go to a lot of shows. But I had to have this one.
Opener, For The Opener, Good Night & Good Morning
Good Night & Good Morning
were the first band on a three band show. They were very ambient (look, I worked for Projekt Records for 4.5 years in the 90s, hard to impress me with the ambient). But they are actually fine and will probably get much better if they experiment more.
Would make an unsolicited suggestion; they have a xylophone and that is cool but it would be more unique if it sounded more like a xylophone. Also? Turn down the reverb on the vocals.
