Witterings from an old indie kid
Quite a journey this one which crosses the borders of shoegaze, post rock and dream pop whilst on it’s travels.
The instrumental title track opens the proceedings with post rock guitars merged with voices recorded from the TV or radio. It blends into another eight minute plus track in the shape of Quanto Tempo which has a poppier sound spruced with some trumpets. Despite not sounding like it, it is effective and works amazingly well!
Sadly our ride comes off the rails with the well meaning but ultimately unsatisfying Libélula. It’s a slight break with 1990’s alt-rock sounding effort on Voando before they entertain us with the dreamy, sometimes drone like and definitely spaced out Madrugada.
The final track which lasts over 10 minutes is Canção da Volta which could be a collection of three or four parts fused together mixing a range of sounds ranging from experimental to metal. Aside from the one derailment this is entertaining stuff to drift off too. It’s certainly not my usual cup of tea but I think I will put the headphones back on and make a return trip. All aboard!
