The Portuguese agit-synth-rock creator Bruno Sobral in the vehicle of Tsunamiz releases the LP Whoreporate Censorshit on the 13th.
There is nothing else to do than turn up the speaker system and sing along with Warning! – taken from the album – whilst dancing along with the scalpel precision and surgical excision of the tumour that is the 1% who quite evidently believe that the 99% exist to serve their foul and foetid existence.

The curling folds of extended loops circle the room akin to immersive and infinite revolutions as acoustic and plugged in instrumentation paint the winding rope core, providing the listener with a roughly eighteen minute four track EP (available on bandcamp) in which to loose their sense of direction and time in the psychedelic effects.
Best heard in totality The Length Of A Line is an almost continual thread of ideas rather than chapters dividing a book, however a section that stands as a highlight – the second track – Tease Me – serves as my pick of the release.
The Portuguese world-music quintet Ararur have an LP scheduled for release in December.
There is a certain inevitability that when I ask you to rest in the arms of tranquillity, I am thinking it may well be coming up to the weekend here in the UK and Ararur with Abril, the first track to surface from the album, invites the listener to kick back their heels and let the grime wash away.
