Borregos

Deve ser mesmo lixado ser músico em Portugal. Muitos passam uma vida inteira sem nunca conseguirem sequer viver desta arte, enquanto olham pela janela e pensam na Taylor Swift e em quanto dinheiro ela varre cada vez que pisa um palco devido à atitude desenfreada de pitas histéricas que necessitam de estar ali a verem aquilo, que nunca vão ser para continuarem a viver. Esta realidade não é única ao nosso país. Muitos australianos, espanhóis e americanos indignados com esta visibilidade absurda que tem a música comercial merdosa de hoje em dia. Também não vale muito a pena comparar a

Festival “A Porta”

Estive à conversa com o Gui Garrido que para além de um jovem bastante bem disposto é também a cara do Festival “A Porta” a realizar em Leiria desde do dia 16 e que se estende (e bem!) até dia 24! Como em muitos outros festivais organizados pelas bonitas Terras de Portugal este também tem o objetivo maior de animar aqueles que lá vivem com música que não costumam ouvir todos os dias (pelo menos ao vivo) num formato que leve a despertar também a curiosidade pela região. Estivemos no Impulso  onde num dia vimos todas umas Caldas da Rainha reunidas

Introducing – Living Room Concerts Madrid

In the heart of Madrid lies a simple yet magnificent concept, it’s gathered over 2000+ members since its creation in 2015 and has staged artists from around the world who are not only visiting but residing in Madrid. Introduced and created as a social experience with music by Nichole Hastings, the group was started with three purposes in mind: “The first is to discover new original music. The second is to remove the stage and have a more direct interaction and connection between performer and audience. The third is to create a space where concert-goers can meet new people and

GUM – The Underdog – Album Review

When one thinks of the origins of the Psych Rock wave that has totally paved this current decade one has to bring about two of its Australian creators that even have some artists exchange. Pond, lead by Nick Allbrook, had as its initial drummer the future leader of Tame Impala, where Allbrook was playing the bass until fully assuming his leading role in Pond. At the same time, another name was common to both bands which evolved into GUM that released today “The Underdog” another piece of this infinite puzzle of spacial music brought to us by this austrALIENS. After Nick

Sinestesia? Ouçam Galgo

Quantas vezes uma música vos remete para um determinado estado de espírito, um certo cenário projetado pela mescla entre a vossa memória e imaginação? Quantas vezes ouvem algo doce e acolhedor, quente de Verão, que vos pinta a vista com um filtro amarelo de quem viaja pela costa e ostenta o mar? Quantas vezes aquela certa música guardada para o conforto de um cobertor vos faz sentir que o mundo lá fora não possui sobressaltos, é somente desvanecido, cinza como aguarela molhada de chuva? Não se trata de um pensamento abstrato, de um devaneio criativo de quem imagina como se

Once again festival season is upon us, across Europe the dates and line-ups are set whilst people plan out what to attend, who to see and with what money. Just Musically Speaking has already covered what to expect this year from NOS Primavera Sound, but I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce Portugal’s other amazing festival Vodafone Paredes de Coura, a gathering of artists, music-lovers and people of all walks of life for a magical event. For those who may not be familiar with this gathering, here is my recollection of last year’s 25th edition and who to look

TIPO – “Novas Ocupações”

TIPO materializou-se hoje pela primeira em formato álbum e não podíamos estar mais contentes com esta notícia. Tínhamos vindo a ouvir algumas amostras muito prometedoras que não foram tímidas em também aparecer na rádio. Tudo isto poderia parecer raro, não fosse o TIPO o projeto a solo de uma cara já nossa conhecida. Salvador Menezes, dos You Can´t Win Charlie Brown trouxe consigo Afonso Cabral e a sua guitarra acústica de aço que já nessa banda soa a muito mais do que qualquer outra acústica, o experiente e talentoso Tomás Sousa na bateria que também toca com Francisca Cortesão nos
