Amor de Dias, Damon & Naomi 

When: Wed., June 1, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-12
British singer/songwriter/guitarist Alasdair MacLean breathes delicate sonic beauty. As leader of the Clientele, he's helmed five albums awash with subdued pop charmers, each LP a classic of hushed, autumnal splendor. MacLean's new project with Pipas singer Lupe Núñez-Fernández, Amor de Dias, is a subtly different endeavor, but the outcome is similar: You get chills all over. Nuanced bossa-nova rhythms gently nudge things along on Amor de Dias' Street of the Love of Days, but Clientele fans will lurve this stuff. Damon and Naomi traffic in similar realms of melancholy, flower-petal-soft ballads, although electric guitarist Michio Kurihara occasionally adds ascending, baroque embellishments. Their latest full-length, False Beats and True Hearts, proves that these ex-Galaxie 500 vets haven't lost any of their chamber-pop wiles. DAVE SEGAL
