AMOR DE DIAS (Spanish for “love of days”) is the supergroup formed by ALASDAIR MACLEAN of the CLIENTELE and LUPE NUNEZ-FERNANDEZ of PIPAS. Over the course of three years, they quietly put together their debut record during evenings and weekends as they called in local friends (LOUIS PHILIPPE) and visiting musicians (DAMON and NAOMI, GARY OLSON) for sessions, building up the songs’ multifaceted arrangements and vocal harmonies with harps, bouzoukis, strings, recorders, and brass over the core of dual Spanish guitars and the dream imagery of their bilingual lyrics. The result is a focused, cohesive jewel of chamber pop that reflects a little of Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso’s elegant brand of bossa nova, a bit of Erik Satie’s haunting night music, and a large dose of spooky psychedelic folk. But the beautiful harmony that sings throughout the record makes it all their own. At times spare and empty, at times rich with instrumental texture, and at times jazz-tinged and hypnotic, Street of the Love of Days rivals anything either Alasdair or Lupe has recorded before. No Export.
