4 stars Second Effort...Great Again!

There´s no big difference between BDC´s first album and this one. Both have short songs led by many different vocals (feminine and masculine;all good),excelent lyrics (all in Portuguese), great dynamics, many sudden and subtlle changes in tempo and texture, large variety of instruments beeing used (and sometimes abused) and no drums! Though this time they did use a little bit more of percussion. And on their third (Hoje Há Conquilhas...) yet to come at the time, they where going to use even more... Don´t get me wrong, no drumkit is no weakness, it´s just a characteristic of this rather unique sound. The rythm is still there, you can even dance to it if you feel like it!

This time they dug out some traditional oldies from several regions of the country and gave it a prog treat! worked out preety well! Along with a bunch of new originals BDC did not disappoint with this Coisas do Arco da Velha ( Things from the old lady´s arch wich means: really old stuff...ironic hum?), and so i recommend this album and this great band to all those who like and NEED to listen to different and refreshing stuff...

...refresh yourself with Banda do Casaco´s genuine ProgFolk! 4 Solid Stars!
