The House at Sea


Amor de Días


Amoeba Review

01/28/2013

The Clientele’s Alasdair MacLean’s and Pipas’ Lupe Núñez-Fernández unite for their second album of bossa-nova-inspired, acoustic dream pop on The House at Sea. After its first couple of tracks drift by uneventfully, MacLean and Núñez-Fernández come together for the title track, which is absolutely enchanting in its faded warmth and scenic detail. Similarly, “Jean’s Waving” makes the most of its two vocalists for a charming three-chord, Clientele-style ditty that’ll have you singing along on first listen. Occasionally Núñez-Fernández’s songs are too airy, but her Spanish-sung “Viento del Mar” hits all the right notes. Similarly, when MacLean tries not to worry about sounding too much like the Clientele, he comes up with winners like the beatific “Hampshire Lullaby.” The House at Sea is far from perfect, but give it a few spins and it will carry you away.
