Entrevistámos o Impulso!

Nuno Monteiro, ex-aluno e agora docente da ESAD, no curso de Som e Imagem e técnico de som de muitos artistas que tocam nas  nossas playlists diariamente, teve a simpatia de falar comigo e explicar como aconteceu este Festival ao qual teremos o prazer de assistir. A razão de existência é nobre! No concelho das Caldas da Rainha há mais de 2000 jovens que não tiveram até agora um evento de divulgação musical perto de casa e Nuno acredita que para além destes muitos mais, como nós, irão visitar e conhecer pela primeira vez este concelho encantador! Para além disso,

Nick Suave: “I Speak Rock & Roll”

Depois de um ótimo almoço no “Café com Calma” em Marvila, onde a carteira não sofre nada, foi nessa mesma pérola lisboeta que me sentei na esplanada a tomar café com Nick Suave: Comecei por lhe chamar “Rei da Margem Sul”, ao que respondeu “Qual Rei?! A Margem Sul não é uma monarquia”. E foi com este tom de humildade que se estendeu a entrevista. Nick, também conhecido até completar o 4ºano de escolaridade por Carlos Ramos, é um daqueles verdadeiros amantes e difusores do Rock&Roll. Nesse mundo é mais conhecido por Nick Nicotine, apesar de ter começado a fumar

Solomon Grey – “Human Music” – Album Review

On the 16th of February the World will get to know one of the most beautiful and touching pieces of work that we have had the luck to listen in the last decade. After having released in 2016 their first album with an homonymous name “Solomon Grey” where they exposed for the first time their cinematic approach to music. From it and from the trailer of Dheepan where their music first appeared and made as much impact to the audience as the visuals did. In this first album their inspiration came from fatherhood moments since both turned fathers during the writing

Conversando com Mr.Gallini

E o ano começou da melhor maneira com o primeiro álbum de Mr.Gallini, também conhecido como Bruno Monteiro, baterista e frontman de Stone Dead, que agora lança finalmente o seu projecto em formato álbum. E se esta notícia não fosse boa o suficiente há mais duas! Um álbum de eletrónica com as três ou quatro malhas que compôs assim que adquiriu o seu primeiro sintetizador e mais algum material que foi explorando nos mundos dos sinewaves e um álbum com banda visto que na realidade existiam músicas que faziam mais sentido em banda e com algum input de Jonas (também

Minta & The Brook Trout – ConverSession

My first encounter with “Minta &The Brook Trout” was probably the same as for many, with “Falcon”  from their second full-length work, “Olympia”. A sad melancholic Pop ballad with one of their best guitar lines and a beautifully built chorus filled with harmonies from the Wind to the Strings categories. However “Minta’s” work does not resume itself to it. A project fronted by Francisca Cortesao has gathered already a dedicated audience and released their Third and Best work so far in 2016, “Slow”.

Mighty Sands – ConverSessions

In a dark February night, when the rain was already settling down, me and Bernardo parked the car in front of a church and embarked in yet another conversession, this time with a re-known band of the Portuguese scene. They intend to revolutionise music not only by playing it as well as from the industry perspective, since they are as well the proud founders of Spring Toast Records, that has been launching the younger names, of the endless pit of raw music talent, that Portugal has been proving to be!

Sandy Kilpatrick – ConverSession

Spiritual. Philosopher. Songwriter. Dreamer. If I would have to tag Sandy these would be the chosen words. A man that proves that music can still be done for the pleasure of the self as well as for spiritual retreat from the World, is now releasing his new Album, his third complete work, keeping alive the dream of someday being able of living just of his Art. If Alternative Folk would have a hero, his name would be Sandy Kilpatrick!

Them Flying Monkeys – ConverSessions

As I walked down the narrow streets the cloudy sunset colors were penetrating the mountains of Sintra, a location that could not be more mystical. A village in the middle of the forest where big castles towers appear in every corner as one walks by reminding me of those fairytales that one only hears about in Disney stories or more medieval/gothic tv shows like Game of Thrones. Our first question was directed to this place as an inspiration which was never seen as such by the band but they ended up acknowledging that in this first album to be released the 10th of February there are some clear marks of inspiration in this wonderful place.
