And that beginning was good. But beginning of what? It certainly wasn't the first time they played this song -- and by they I'm referring to the collective forces that make up the self-described Anti-Folk band Very Little Daylight -- nor was it the first show they had played this song at. The beginning, instead, refers to the beginning of a new approach to music discovery and promotion that we at amp.fm have decided to place focus on. We live in a world where information is fed to us through a firehose, a delivery mechanism that has found it's way into nearly every aspect of media consumption. Options are fantastic, don't get me wrong. But when you move from making a choice between available options and those same options being drown out by too many options to discern where one begins and the other ends, we move from making choices to having them made for us out of shear exhaustion. And this is one area of the new approach to amp.fm in which we feel needs a significant level of focused attention towards finding those bands in which have typically been drown out by the line noise and bring them to the attention of those in whom truly appreciate great music and the discovery of great musicians. As it relates to amp,fm, in the beginning there were truly great things. Very Little Daylight is one of those really great things. And so it begins...
I'm becoming accustomed to both hearing and seeing jaw-dropping performances each and every time VLD takes the stage, and yet I still find myself in awe as yet-another-mind-blowing performance has been put forward by Elliot, Ian, Raina, and Ross of Very Little Daylight. Closing out their Friday, June 14th, 2013 show at Tiger Bar PDX with their first public performance of "Way Too Far", VLD once again showcases their collective passion for the music enhanced with sights and sounds and a unified purpose of leaving you standing speechless while they quietly pack up and walk away as if nothing out of the ordinary just happened.
It did. It always does. Each and every time VLD they takes the stage. That's just the way they roll.
