BirdieOnly their fourth gig in over ten years, this is going to be very special. The chance to see Debsey Wykes and Paul Kelly on stage as Birdie doesn't come around very often. You can't miss this.

Amor de DiasThe very first Amor de Dias gig with a rhythm section. No ordinary engine room at that: this one numbers Clientele alumni James Hornsey and Howard Monk. Not only that, this is Amor de Dias' only UK gig following the release of their wonderful second album, The House At Sea.

Hacia Dos VeranosLimay is a masterpiece. Don't believe me? Amor de Dias' Alasdair MacLean said: "Their guitarist is a maestro: economical, precise, lyrical. His rolling, arpeggiated style will remind you of Felt’s Maurice Deebank or Vini Reilly, but he also possesses a faint echo of Johnny Marr, in that for all his sense of space and harmony he’s playing tunes first and foremost."

a lovely review of Bolero

yup, the Songs For Girls To Sing blog has reviewed the first single from Limay:

"... it turned out to be mesmerizing. Okay, the exotic name helped too! There’s some exquisite guitar playing there, affecting enough to not even miss or anticipate the vocal to come along."

and you can download it for FREE! here

Bolero video

The first video from Limay is for Bolero. Ignacio says, "It has the sound of the trio playing live." He also says, "Give us the Falkland back, you bloody colonialists! And the name is Malvinas!" We'd be happy to oblige if our influence extended that far, because anyone who writes a song this good can have what they bloody well want.

Limay is released on February 18. You can order a copy now.
