The Close Of Every Day
For those unfamiliar with the band, at the close of every
day (atcoed), existing of minco eggersman and axel kabboord
(this beautiful mess), made their debut with their album "zalig
zijn de armen van geest" (blessed are the poor in spirit)
at the end of 2002 and their ep "if you spoke to me"
later on in 2003, which were received well worldwide, containing
sober, melancholic songs reminiscent of low, red house painters
and smog. Their version of the church's "under the milky
way" was regularly played at the Australian radio, while
their original "high school lovers USA", released
on the American deep elm label, was licensed to MTV for the
real world, among others. At the close of 2003 they did a
successful European tour supporting 16 Horsepower in support
of their critically praised full-length "the silja symphony".
"the silja symphony" was inspired by a documentary
on the disaster with the ferry "Estonia" in 1994
with songs dealing with loss, hope, faith and the things that
pass. All songs somehow form one compelling whole, from the
instrumental opening "the departure" to the closing
sailor song "all things end in waters".
January of 2004 Lo-Fidelity released the limited edition At
The Close Of Every Day vinyl record, "The
Silja Symphony" with the bonus live CD EP "Live
In Amsterdam". This release is TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE.
