Your Daily Lick: L'Avventura

Your Star Was Shining (Elliptical Recordings)



San Francisco-via London trio Niagara, plus a complete cast of backing musicians, reemerges as L'Avventura on this generally polite, highly refined collection of pop tunes. Classic rock songcraft, with the studio employed to full effect and every note in its right place, informs the approach. Your Star Was Shining may be mature, but it's not boring.

At 33 Revolutions (10086 San Pablo Ave., El Cerrito) on Apr. 17. 8 p.m., free
