Street Of The Love Of Days
Amor de Días (Spanish for love of days) is the supergroup formed by Alasdair MacLean of the Clientele and Lupe Núñez-Fernández 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 Velosos elegant brand of bossa nova, a bit of Erik Saties 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.1. Foxes Song

Coisa BoaFirst Album In 11 Years!
Moreno Veloso is back with a good thing. That, anyway, is the literal translation of the title to the Brazilian singer, songwriter, and producer's upcoming Coisa Boa, his first album in 13 years.
The set follows Veloso's production work on the last three albums from his father, Tropicália giant Caetano Veloso (including 2013's Abraçaço), along with a forthcoming record by Gilberto Gil. Since 2001's Music Typewriter, the younger Veloso has also released the rest of the +2 album trilogy with friends Domenico Lancellotti and Alexandre Kassin (those are Domenico+2's 2003 Sincerely Hot and Kassin+2's 2007 Futurismo).
The new album's Em Todo Lugar, which is Portuguese for everywhere, is limpid, airy, and coolly sophisticated, and you can hear it below. Three songs from the new album feature in Richard Linklater's new film Boyhood, which debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Scroll down to hear Coisa Boa and Verso Simples, too.
We're just trying to make something we like and that's a new way of doing things for us, Veloso explained in a statement. Before, we wanted to make it sound very new, but now we're not trying to do that, just trying to do music.
Lancellotti and Kassin help out on the album, which was recorded with about 30 musicians in nine studios around the world. Other guests include guitarists Arto Lindsay and Pedro Sá, bassist Melvin Gibbs, pianist Daniel Jobim, keyboardist Rodrigo Bartolo, and multi-instrumentalist Takako Minekawa.

Chega De Saudade (Out Of Stock)Includes Bonus CD of the entire album!
It would probably not be an overstatement to call this the most influential Brazilian album of all time. Originally released in 1959, Chega de Saudade is the album cited as creating bossa nova so to say that it lit a fire in the music world would be putting it mildly. It would be perhaps more accurate to say that it influenced so many musicians both at home (Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, etc.) and abroad (Stan Getz, Herbie Mann, Charlie Byrd) that it effectively single-handedly changed the way people both made and listened to music, and put Brazilian artists on the map. Almost every song on this album has gone on to become a standard, and Gilberto, called O Mito, is today, at age 79, truly a living legend. Here Gilberto collaborates with both Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes, both legends in their own right. Moraes and Jobim would soon go on to write the song that won them a Grammy in 1965, The Girl From Ipanema.Side A
