Stone Dead: “Candy”

Read More

The Stone Dead are the debut that I bring you today with “Good Boys“, edited by Lovers & Lollypops.

Flirting with the conceptual, the quartet of Alcobaça goes through rock’n’roll, in songs that oscillate between psychedelic and more robust guitars without never abdicating the riff and the bass lines as main engines of the narrative.

In summary, the Stone Dead show ten songs worked hard, growing beyond specifics generic, as you can hear already in the video clip they did for “Candy.” In a video idealized by the band itself and made by drummer Bruno Monteiro, the band unveils a sweet rock with a strong distortion. The indisputable proof of the multipurpose riffs of the quartet of Alcobaça.

Circo Litoral: “Além do Mar”

Read More

Circo Litoral emerged in August 2012 and is included in a context of self-affirmation of alternative music produced in Bahian lands. The band stands on the threshold between the new Brazilian popular music and alternative and independent rock.

Two years after the EP “Antes do Que Se Pensa“, Circo Litoral launches its first complete album, produced by Thiago Ribeiro (Toco and me voy) and Dieguito Reis (Vivendo do Ócio).
As cliché as it sounds, this is a more mature work compared to the previous record. “Além do Mar” has arrangements that somehow reflect the identity of the band.

Sandy Kilpatrick: “Burlesque Sky”

Read More

Burlesque Sky” is the second single from Sandy Kilpatrick‘s new album which was released on March 17th in a memorable show at Theatro Circo de Braga. This theme is the presentation of the more bohemian side of “Confessions from The South” and Sandy Kilpatrick himself, Scottish by birth but citizen of the world, without frontiers. It is a song that transports us to a bohemian Braga, leaving an almost literary universe: burlesque festivals, seductive dances, choir voices, warm nights and reddish tones.

In the artist’s words this is a theme that, even though it is in honor of Braga and Theatro Circo, was born in New York: “I was there to meet with Miss Exotic World, Julie Atlas Muz, and talk about the co-production of an event called The Day of the Dead. The event was held later on Halloween 2007 at Theatro Circo de Braga, while still working in that house. ”

This event brought to Braga the biggest names in the burlesque in 2007 and created the eagerness in Sandy Kilpatrick to compose a song that “could give life to all the world of burlesque, freedom, pleasure and joy of dancing. Of the spirit. ” Now in 2017, Sandy Kilpatrick admits that “It may have taken 10 years to bring Burlesque Sky to the world, but some things are worth the wait. I think with The Origins Band I’ve finally been able to bring it to life.”

azul-revolto: “PACT FROM BELOW”

Read More

The Lisbon producer Hugo Barão is back to music with his azul-revolto. “LIVID” is its third EP and was edited by London-based Algebra. The successor to EP “SOMA” points to a more industrial sound, always with eyes on the dance floor, where the sonic Arca world and the dark, urban streets of Burial meet the ruined metropolis of Blade Runner.

According to João Pedro Fonseca, director of the video, ” “Pact From Below” is on the border between the interior and the exterior where the body really gives itself. Layer after layer, as we get to know it, the more it has the tendency to fragment. They are the lights, the strobes, the colors and the shadows that give “skin” to the fragments of a screen that we think is empty. There is a need for a constant self-knowledge that each outdated frontier complicates the subject making us question what belongs to whom. It is a dark and dense but never visceral environment because the body here is a mere tool, an object thrown over the emptiness to remind us that there is no journey – be it interior or exterior – without return.”

Fleeting Circus: “Disconnection”

Read More

Fleeting Circus‘s musicians appeared on the national scene with a distinctive sound, influences that combined indie rock and circus art. After six years of road, EP, album and documentary released, the band is preparing for another big step: the release of their second album, which marks the beginning of a new sound. Proof of this change is the “Disconnection” clip, which is also the first single from the upcoming work. The relaxed atmosphere reveals a self-confident band that is not limited to labels.

The song “Disconnection” brings a letter that evokes the disconnection between body and mind, while the melody passes an unpretentious vibration. Guitarist Felipe Vianna says the idea for the clip came naturally, fitting in with the song: “The most important thing was to have fun and do something simple and straightforward that would better represent the new phase that the band is in. We wanted something that unites the simplicity of the song, with the inconsistency in the lyrics and title of the track, “he explains.

Marco Aurélio Abreu directed the video, who also worked in the video of “Underground“. The clip also features the participation of Patrick Laplan, who produced the new album and recorded the drums. The recording lasted a day and was held in the band’s own studio, the Fleeting Cave.

Fleeting Circus is formed by the musicians Taynã Frota, Rodrigo Seven and Lucas Faria, besides Felipe Vianna. They emerged in the independent scene with the EP ‘Dream World Of Magic‘ (2011), which led the group to participate in the soundtrack of the novel “Guerra dos Sexos” and the program “Divertics“, both of TV Globo. In 2014 they released the self-titled album, which was mixed by Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Faith No More) and mastered by Jonathan Wyner (David Bowie, Nirvana). In 2015, the documentary “Brooklyn Days“, which talks about the tour of the band in the USA was released, and currently, the musicians continue in the post-production of the next disc.

Vaarwell: “Homebound 456”

Read More

There are records that look like books.

A narrator (Margarida Falcão, a sister voice of Catarina, when both presented themselves as Golden Slumbers), and a narrative line that runs through small stories, fragments, ideas scattered by Homebound 456, composed by Luis Monteiro, Ricardo Nagy and at the same time Margarida.

A certain notion of somber, melancholy space, laced with the contaminating sound of the feminine voice that guides us through clear but taciturn and disturbing places. Then, as if to finalize an idea begun, an intimate environment reminiscent of distant times, inaccurate, shimmering sound images, where light and shadow battle quietly for their space.
