Brotherly Love: Day Action Band
Who? Day Action Band
What? Folky songs, that you can whistle to!
Sounds like? Lou Barlow, Sebadoh…actually all lou barlow stuff, except the loud things. I read Jim O’rourke as a reference, and that’s something i can agree with for a bit.
So, Aviary Ghost played folk songs. So does Day Action Band, but they don’t fill their songs with rich arrangements.
Aviary Ghost offered an album for free, but you had to sign up to their newsletter. Day Action band follows the same procedure, although their free album is already 6 years old (but amazingly good none the less). So they were first.
Their last album so far, Wives & Babies, is pretty good too (you can listen to it by clicking on the link), but the free album ‘Girl With A Gun’ is superb. The First song is from that Wives & Babies-album, the other two from Girl with a gun. You can buy their album on Cd Baby or through the extremely small label Captain Cape.
