- DIARIO is no more. We miss you guys!
Chicago could be anywhere. This time the spaceship of advanced and intense limit-negotiation is landing in Leipzig, Germany. Diario is a four-piece instrumental band, formed in 1999. Their goal is stretching both the language and structure of what has previously been dubbed as ´post-rock´ into realms of rock, jazz and folk.
Diario bring forth a different point of view on these roots, including rolling thunder, complex melodies and even some beats and breaks from outside the rock world. Their tunes surprise the listener at every turn, never allowing its audience to become complacent. Every instrument is like an actor in a warm but experimental film, setting a new key scene with every moment whilst the other instruments follow in discussion the result. Diario is like instruments criticize each other but finding a solution out on every argue.
Of course Diario are a brilliant live band, improvising their material but never losing control. Their attitude as well as musical roots dates back to the good ol´ days when Chicago postrockers created a completely new way of musical thinking. Deep in this tradition Diario evaluate their influences without immitation or copying starter foundations as the mighty Slint, Tortoise, Don Caballero or Karate. They fit in no category, nonetheless waving their melodies in the same haze as Billy Mahonie, Calexico, Dianogah, Atombombpocketknife, Tristeza, Quixotic or 90 Day Men. Their records are of those which stay and grow – like good friends, but with having their own struggles and opinions. Didn´t you say yesterday you need that?
