Trauma Lips

A ten track album of dripping moss that minds the listener of a dank sea-cave festooned with the eerie shapes of stalactites and stalagmites as the vocal rotates through the compressed bass and drum kit with the elongated guitar adding to the sense of looming foreboding.

Empty Bottle is the opener.

Problems – Trauma Lips is available on iTunes.*

Olivae – A Place To Stay – Single Review

Vasco Oliveira is a sadcore-folk musician from Porto (Portugal) who performs as Olivae.

Having taken a run through the back catalogue I merely suggest having a pile of clean handkerchiefs to hand to wipe away tears prior to opening up the music.

A little late to the latest release, A Place To Stay (available on bandcamp), which came out earlier this month – apologies.

A song which resonates of gently played strings of acoustic guitar, breaking vocal, both, brushed with the soft keys and hushed vocal of Sara Teixeira creating its own tear streak that catches all those it touches.

Serrabulho – Pito Sem Penas – Audio

The quartet of Carlos Guerra (Vocals / Sampling), Paulo Ventura (Guitar / Vocals), Guilhermino Martins (Bass / Sampling / Vocals) and Ivan Saraiva (Drums) from Vila Real (Portugal) who form the alt-metal band Serrabulho released the LP Porntugal (Portuguese Vagitarian Gastronomy) yesterday.

Serrabulho
Serrabulho

An eleven track album (available on bandcamp) which has something of the theatre of the absurd about it with the mélange of disney cartoon snips, screaming hardcore and sampled human and animal sounds being sellotaped in to each other as though someone has cut through a reel to reel tape and put it back together in a random sequence. 

Consequentially this will divide the listeners between those who will immediately reach for the off switch and those reaching for the volume increase button, that I am suggesting you spend time in their company alerts you to my speaker system playing at full volume.

In addition to instruments / percussion listed a plethora of others including bagpipes, rabel and radufe feature as well as additional musicians to the members who form the band – in the roughly thirty eight minutes of the LP.

 Pito Sem Penas is the fourth track.

Fairly regularly revealing new material which is always drawn from the well of wide ranging rock, to which they add a shimmering haze that gives the tracks a slightly trippy feel.

The latest song to surface, which serves as an introduction to their material, is the southern-blues influenced disruption.

The latest track to surface MOV0032A opens with a glitchy bass and prestissimo steel with electronica and snare merging in to the sound prior to the electronica taking over the shape of the song and resulting in a just over three minutes of drifting ambiance.
